ACCREDITATION OF ESL PROGRAMS IN CANADA
Accreditation is a form of independent, professional certification that assures you and your parents that a school or program adheres to particular standards.

Since Canadian education is regulated provincially (not by the federal government), there is no national accreditation system for educational institutions. Accreditation of English as a Second Language (ESL) programs in Canada is carried out by several independent organizations. The most important are:
  • Languages Canada/Langues Canada: The premier language accreditation group in Canada, it was created in March 2008 through the amalgamation of its predecessors, the Canada Language Council (CLC) and the Canadian Association of Private Language Schools (CAPLS). English and French members of Languages Canada are required to be accredited by the association's quality assurance scheme. It offers accreditation to universities, colleges and qualifying private language programs and colleges.

  • Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (CEA): CEA is an international accreditation organization based in the USA.

    Accreditation of ESL programs may also depend on the kind of school offering them. For instance, career colleges often offer ESL programs, and these schools must be registered and licensed by the education ministry of their province. A private career college in Canada may choose to become a member of an external association, such as the National Association of Career Colleges (NACC), and each province also has an association, such as the Alberta Association of Career Colleges (AACC) or New Brunswick Association of Career Colleges (NBACC). As well, career colleges may be accredited by the Canadian Education and Training Accreditation Commission (CETAC).

    Why Accreditation?
    Accreditation assures you and your parents that the school's programs are delivered by qualified faculty and are up-to-date. A credential from an accredited school or program can help make you more competitive on the job market, and will protect you from scams and substandard instruction.
