Registration

There are many different conference registration options for you, depending upon your schedule, your budget, your membership status and your student status.  Read your registration options below before you register to make sure you select the option that is best for you.

Please note that the account to register for the TESL Canada Conference is separate from your TESL.ca account and you will need to create a new account on Conference Manager in order to register.  Scroll down to the bottom of the page to start your registration process.

Registration for the conference is still open.  If you register after Tuesday, June 6th your participant certificate will be emailed to you as a PDF.  On site registration through the online system will continue until the start of the second day of the conference, Saturday, June10th.

Early Bird Conference Registration and Accommodation Package

If you are attending the full conference, the most cost effective option is our Early Bird Conference Registration and Hotel Package.  You will receive a discount on your early bird registration when you also book your accommodation at one of the conference venue hotels, the Sheraton on the Falls Hotel or the Crowne Plaza Fallsview Hotel.  This package does not cover the cost of your hotel reservation but does entitle you to discounted rates.  For a list of exclusive hotel rates for conference attendees, click here.  This package is subject to hotel availability, so make sure you book early.  Your hotel booking must be completed separately using the links provided on the accommodation page, by the early bird registration deadline of April 30th, 2017.  Should you subsequently change your hotel booking, you will be required to pay the difference between the package and the regular early bird conference registration.  The Early Bird Conference Registration and Accommodation Package is NOT available if you are registering as a student.

The Early Bird Registration Deadline has been extended to May 5th, 2017 at midnight CST

Food, Glorious Food!

Your conference registration includes two snack breaks each day as well as a lunch.  Your symposium registration includes a lunch.  Tickets for the Gala Dinner on Friday, June 9th, 2017 may be purchased in addition to your conference registration.  Please request any special dietary requirements when registering.

Definition of a Student:

A student is defined as anyone registered in a nationally or provincially accredited English language teacher training Certificate or Diploma course between September 2016 and June 2017, and anyone registered as an undergraduate or graduate student in a degree program, part-time or full-time, for the September 2016 to April 2017 academic year. When you register as a student you will be required to submit verification of your student status. This verification can be any one of the following documents:

  1. A letter from your accredited English language teacher training Certificate or Diploma course provider indicating your current enrolment in their program.
  2. A transcript or certificate showing successful completion of an accredited English language teacher training Certificate or Diploma, with the completion date falling between September 1, 2016 and the date of the conference.
  3. A letter from your academic advisor or supervisor confirming your registration in an undergraduate or graduate degree program for the September 2016 to April 2017 academic year.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

Language education professionals can earn CEUs for attending the TESL Canada conference and pre-conference symposia. The international standard for CEUs is one CEU for every 10 hours of professional development, therefore attendees can earn one CEU for each full day of the conference or pre-conference symposia they participate in.  Please note that this is a general guideline and CEU standards may vary from one teaching context to the next.  It is your responsibility to check the CEU requirements for your specific teaching context.

Important Note for International Attendees:  If you are not living in Canada and do not have a Canadian passport, you will need to verify which documents you need in order to come to Canada to attend the conference.  Check the following website for the documents you require:  http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/visas.asp.  If you require a visa, please allow sufficient time for your visa application process to be completed before the conference.  If you require a Letter of Invitation from TESL Canada as part of your visa application process, your first step is to register for the conference and complete payment.  Your second step is to contact us at conference@tesl.ca to request a Letter of Invitation.  In your email include your full name, address, telephone number, and email address along with your conference registration number.  We will send you the Letter of Invitation via email as a PDF at no charge.  Please allow at least two business days for the Letter of Invitation to be issued.  For some countries, the Letter of Invitation needs to be notarized.  We will complete this for you at a charge of $35.00 CAD, which is what it costs us.  Please allow three business days for a notarized Letter of Invitation to be issued.  Please note that TESL Canada has NO control over the visa application and issuance process.
