BC extends tuition-free ESL to Canadian citizens at public PSE schools

April 9, 2012

The BC government announced last Thursday that Canadian citizens can now take ESL courses for free at 17 public PSE institutions throughout the province. As stipulated by the Canada-BC Immigration Agreement, ESL courses are being provided tuition-free to new immigrants through the 17 PSE schools and WelcomeBC's English Language Services for Adults program. The provincial government is extending this tuition-free policy to Canadian citizens at public PSE schools to ensure they have access to the same opportunities as recent immigrants. BC News Release
