TESL Canada Honourary Life Member Awards

The TESL Canada Federation is now preparing for the next Honourary Life Member Awards to be presented at the TESL Canada 2017 Conference in Niagara Falls. The purpose of the award is to honour our “living national treasures”, those among us who have made exemplary contributions to TESL in Canada.

We are looking for those outstanding individuals on whom we count for wise counsel and unfailing support, those who have shown leadership in both the workplace and the community in areas such as:

  • academic, vocational, sociocultural and linguistic instruction
  • cross cultural counselling
  • labour market access training or citizenship training and multicultural liaison.

Nominees must have provided outstanding service over a period of not less than 20 years. Recipients will receive a life membership in TESL Canada at an installation ceremony to be held at our national conference. All nominees must be put forward by a provincial or territorial member organization of TESL Canada or a Direct Individual Member in good standing from British Columbia, Ontario, Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Prince Edward Island and Quebec. No more than one nominee per province or territory will be considered at one time.

Please take advantage of this opportunity to honour an individual in your region who has made a difference. Nominations will be accepted at the TESL Canada office until April 13, 2017 for this year’s award. Two nominees will be selected by the Life Members Awards Committee. Award recipients will be notified by April 25, 2017. Please click here to access the nomination form.
