About Us

Cooperative ESL Ministries is an interdenominational, Christian organization. We serve people of all faith and cultures—advocating respect and understanding of their culture, religious, and language backgrounds.

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.

One of our main goals is to fill the gap we see in society’s integration process of immigrant, refugee, and internationals who arrive in Canada. We believe that with training in cross-cultural communication and good principles of adult education for language learners, we can make a difference in the lives of newcomers living in our neighbourhoods and communities.
