TESL Canada Membership

Just a reminder that all ATESL, TESL SK, TESL MB, TESL NB, TESL NS, and TEAL NL members are automatically TESL Canada members and that a portion of your provincial association membership fee ($16/member) also gives you a TESL Canada membership.

In addition, please note that TESL Canada is the only national certification endorsed by these provincial affiliates. You can find out more about TESL Canada certification here: https://tesl.ca/certification/tesl-canada-professional-certification.html
