Anti-Racism Statement

TESL Canada is comprised of, and supports the active expression of, different voices, identities, cultures and worldviews. This is part of our identity as an organization. The TESL Canada National Board knows that Black Lives Matter and Indigenous Lives Matter. We stand against racism, discrimination and injustice in all their forms, and commit to reviewing our policies and practices with an anti-racist lens and to promoting anti-racist pedagogies. We ask that our members continue to hold us accountable in this commitment.

For information about our committees, please see the terms of reference at https://www.tesl.ca/about-us/board-of-directors-and-committees/terms-of-reference.html .

We hope to get the insurance benefits finalized in the new year, so if you have not yet had a chance to take the health insurance survey, it can be found at: https://www.surveymonkey.ca/r/TESLHEALTH
