Kwantlen ESL courses tuition-free

Applicants to Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s English as a Second Language (ESL) programs may be eligible to receive their ESL instruction tuition-free.

Available to Kwantlen students with courses beginning in the summer semester (starting May 2), the option is the result of a joint initiative between the Canadian federal government, the ministries of Advanced Education and Jobs, Tourism and Innovation.

Seventeen B.C. universities, colleges and institutions that provide ESL are eligible for the initiative, which supports access for immigrants and Canadian citizens who want to develop their English skills.

Those eligible include Canadian citizens and permanent residents enrolling in Kwantlen’s English Language Studies (ELST) Diploma or English Language Preparatory (ELPP) Program, as well as individuals in Canada on a work permit as part of Citizen and Immigration Canada’s Live-in Caregiver Program.
