Cooperative ESL Ministries

Welcome to our website. Check out our resources and let us know how we can serve you better in your church, community, and neighbourhood. Our mission is to empower churches to reach out in love to the immigrants and internationals in our communities.

Who We Are

Cooperative ESL Ministries is an interdenominational Christian organization dedicated to welcoming newcomers to Canada. We serve people of all faiths and cultures—advocating respect and understanding of their cultural, religious, and language backgrounds.

What We Do

We work with churches and community groups to plan and execute training and networking events for volunteers serving newcomers to Canada. As well, we provide resources and consulting for starting up new ESL Programs in churches or communities.

Training and Events

Looking to train your volunteers to teach ESL and understand how to communicate interculturally? Check out our training and events page for more information.
