Happy February TESL Canada Members,

With winter in full gear, it gives me great pleasure to send along a couple of positive news updates. First of all, we are pleased to announce TCEF Conference Participation Grants to support five TESL Canada members to attend a professional development conference, to be held in any Canadian province in 2019. If you are interested in applying, please send along the attached from by March 10th. In addition, we include our February edition of our TESL Canada Connects newsletter. Thank you to our newsletter Editor, Celia Logan, for putting this together. If you have items for our next newsletter, please do not hesitate to send them along. We will also be sending out an announcement for two spring Zoom webinars- one in March and one in April. Stay tuned for this news. To those who participated in the CELPIP webinars, your participation letters are forthcoming.

All the best in these last 5 weeks of winter. Let’s hope spring arrives in a timely fashion!
