Cooperative ESL Ministries
Welcome to our website. Please take a look around to see our resources and how we can serve you as you reach out to newcomers in your church, community, and neighbourhood.
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. We also provide resources and consulting for those that want to start up a new ESL Program in their church or community.
Training and Events
Looking to train your volunteers to teach ESL? Or to understand how to communicate interculturally? Check out our training and events page for more information.
