What are the specific requirements for teaching English in Canada?
High-paying university, college, and IELTS teaching jobs prefer TESL Canada Professional Standard 2 certification. The 250-hour TESOL Diploma plus a supervised teaching practice component approved by OnTESOL meet TESL Canada accreditation requirements.
Government-funded LINC centers are established with a purpose to teach English to newcomers to Canada. They require a minimum of TESL Canada Professional Standard 1 in all Canadian provinces except for Ontario, which requires TESL Ontario OCELT (Part 2) certification. Since the LINC job market in Ontario is relatively small, OnTESOL only offers accredited courses that lead to TESL Ontario CTESOL (Part 1) certification. OnTESOL graduates can upgrade with another TESL Ontario institute offering Part 2 separately.
