About TESL Ontario Accreditation
What’s the Difference Between TESL Ontario and TESL Canada?
Most ESL, LINC, IELTS, and/or English teaching jobs in Canada require TESL Canada accreditation.
TESL Canada is required by language schools in Canada that are approved by Languages Canada, while TESL Ontario accreditation is required by the government-run LINC program in Ontario. If you want to teach English with LINC in another Canadian province, TESL Ontario accreditation is not required. Most LINC courses in other provinces prefer TESL Canada Standard 2 accreditation, but TESL Canada Standard 1 is also accepted by some programs.
