About Us

TESL North York/York Region Affiliate Chapter Executive Committee (2016-2017)

The Affiliate Chapter Executive Committee is made up of a diverse group of educators from a variety of backgrounds, all of whom bring a wealth of experience to their roles. To help members access relevant and innovative professional development opportunities, we organize two conferences each calendar year. Through our website, the committee is also dedicated to informing members of additional PD opportunities, current news in the field, and new job postings in and around the Greater Toronto Area.

At our AGM each October, we welcome new applications from interested persons working in language education sectors. If you are interested in becoming a member of the Affiliate Chapter Executive Committee or volunteering at one of our conferences, we would love to hear from you! Please send any inquiries to
