Hello TESL Canada Members,


We realize that this is a very busy and unsettling time for everyone right now. TESL Canada certainly recognizes this reality and will strive to continue regular communications with our membership. Additionally, we will do our utmost to keep our services running smoothly. To this end, before sending any documentation via Canada Post, could you please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

At this time and as spring approaches, we are pleased to be able to offer you another issue of TESL Canada Connects newsletter. Sadly, many provincial partners have had to make the tough decision to postpone or cancel their spring professional learning events. We hope to be able to fill the gap in face-to-face meetings and conferences by offering additional webinars. We were very fortunate to have had two webinars already this winter- one by Scott Douglas on vocabulary and another by Amea Wilbur related to trauma-informed teaching. We are so grateful to both of them for these excellent sessions and for this amazing service to colleagues in TESL Canada. We are hoping to have another webinar for April which will be announced shortly— stay tuned! If you would like to share your expertise with your TESL Canada colleagues via webinar, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Again, our thoughts are with all of our members as worries about health abound. It is not an easy time for teachers and students- we are being called to be both resilient in disposition and innovative in teaching and learning. We are hopeful that better health news is on the horizon. 

Wishing you all the very best. Please take care and stay well. 

Paula Kristmanson, TESL Canada President
