Notice! English as an Additional Language

Please note: Immigrant Settlement & Integration Services has decided to make the move from using the term ESL (English as a Second Language) to EAL (English as an Additional Language). We are doing this for the following reasons:

  1. To recognize and respect the fact that newcomers who are learning English may already speak two or more languages. English is not always the second language.
  2. To keep current with the trend across the country of organizations who are recognizing and respecting this fact. (eg. BC TEAL, TEAL Manitoba, HRSB Adult EAL, etc.)

Thank you for your understanding. New name, same great services!
