Welcome to TESOL Canada

ESL Teachers are certified using the Foundation or the Advanced TESOL Standards. Available Special Interest Groups SIGs are Teaching Academic English TAE, Business English TBE, Academic Subjects TAS, or Teaching English to Children TEC. Programs are available in English, French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.
TESOL CANADA is Canada’s largest recognized "Online TESOL Centre" and the Only Official Centre to provide standards and accreditations to Teachers of English TESOL, French TFSOL and Spanish TSSOL across Canada and worldwide. There are certainly other respected National and Provincial TESL Associations in Canada. However, TESOL Canada differs in its EFL & ESL hybrid and online teaching approaches both in Canada and abroad. In addition to ESL, TESOL Canada's main purpose is to research, design, and upgrade curriculums and standards in teaching 14 international languages. Additional certifications & memberships are offered to teachers of Arabic TASOL, Chinese TCSOL, Japanese TJSOL, Korean TKSOL, Portuguese TPSOL, Russian TRSOL, Turkish TTSOL, German TGSOL and Italian TISOL. Since 1995 TESOL Canada has maintained the highest standards of TESOL and TESL courses along with teachers' training programs in 14 different languages. While most Canadian TESL Associations concentrate within Canada, TESOL Canada is Canada's only centre that has expanded its programs globally.

TESOL Canada has spent a considerable effort to establish Canadian Standards in Teaching TESOL, TESL, TEFL, TFSOL, TSSOL, IELTS, ESL, TOEFL - TOEIC and TFI in English, French and Spanish among the affiliated institutions.
Respecting Bilingual Environment of Canada in English and French with considerations for increasing usage of Spanish & Chinese languages in Canada, since 1997 TESOL Canada has developed adaptable programs in French, Spanish and Chinese. TFSOL Canada ® (Teaching French to Speakers of Other Languages), DELFI (Diplôme d'enseignement de français international), TSSOL ® (Teaching Spanish to Speakers of Other Languages) and TCSOL (Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages) are developed respectively for French, Spanish, and Chinese teachers. To promote and protect Canadian bilingual heritage and culture, Canadian Bilingual Organizations support TESOL and TFSOL Canada .
This program helps to verify if a school or a certain teacher is recognized and accredited, preventing or limiting non-accredited programs that are less than 150 hours.
Continuous education is mandatory in the teaching profession. Online TESOL Canada webinars and courses upgrade teachers about research on teaching skills, latest use of technology in the classroom, lesson plans, and methodologies. Among many, TEC, TBE, TPE and TAS are few additional courses offered to members.
