Immigration into Canada in 2018

Canada’s appeal as an immigration destination has been increasing over the past two decades, with a total of 303,257 immigrating to the country in 2018 which is much more than the 199,170 immigrants that arrived in Canada in 2003.

ESL PROGRAM DIRECTORY

Would you like to improve your English and make new friends? Many Calgary churches offer ESL classes and conversation groups free of charge, or for a nominal fee. Classes are available in every part of the city and are open to everyone.

Cooperative ESL Ministries does not operate ESL classes. We provide this directory for ESL Programs around Calgary and surrounding areas. If you have questions about a particular class, please contact the church directly.

Start an ESL Program

So you want to start an ESL program in your church. Where do you start? Here are a few things to think about and ways Cooperative ESL Ministries can help:

IS YOUR CHURCH PREPARED?

Starting an ESL program in your church requires the entire congregation’s support and involvement. Newcomers (immigrants, refugees, temporary foreign workers, international students, etc.) can go to an ESL class and learn English, but to feel a sense of community, a church congregation must be willing to welcome and embrace ESL students.

HOW WILL YOUR CHURCH REACH NEWCOMERS?

Once you have trained an ESL teacher and prepared your congregation to welcome newcomers, you also need to spread the word about your ESL program. Consider putting an ad in your church’s local neighbourhood newspaper. If your church has a website, add information on your ESL program to the site.

INVEST IN COOPERATIVE ESL MINISTRIES

Your investment will help support Cooperative ESL Ministries’ mission to empower churches to reach out in love to the immigrants and internationals in our communities.
