We have engaging Keynote Speakers coming from across the country to share their expertise on everything Canadian.

Pre-Conference Symposia

At our Pre-Conference Symposia, you will have the opportunity to gain in depth professional development experience in different roles that English language teachers play including: curriculum design, teaching Canadian culture, language assessment, teacher training and teacher education, and language program management.

Graduate Symposium

If you are a graduate student, be sure to sign up for the Graduate Symposium to work with your fellow students on developing key skills for success in the academic world.


Make sure you submit a proposal so that you can share your expertise and ideas with your colleagues in one of the many different presentation formats: pre-conference symposium, practical workshop, theoretical or research paper, panel discussion, teaching activity and materials idea exchange, language teaching and technology idea exchange and poster session.

And on top of all of the great learning and networking, make sure you schedule in a little play time to visit the stunning natural wonder that is Niagara Falls, tour local wineries and stroll the quaint streets of Niagara-on-the-Lake.
