Are you a new Canadian with permanent residency (or are you applying for permanent residency status with a Canadian work permit), a refugee with protected person status, or a new Canadian citizen who needs to update your English language skills to begin or continue post-secondary studies? English for Academic Purposes (EAP) is a rigorous and challenging program designed to prepare you for the academic demands of a post-secondary institution. As closely as possible, it reflects the authentic tasks and assignments that students will be required to do when they go on to credit programs in either college or university. This includes activities such as delivering a 15-minute presentation in English, participating in a controversial debate in front of a panel of judges, reading novels and short stories in English, and working in a team environment. Previous students have found that this program prepares them for the academic challenges and English language requirements of post-secondary education.
