About English Testing Canada

Philosophy

Our mission is to provide English language education and assessment in a friendly and progressive setting. We believe everyone should be treated with dignity and respect. We welcome everyone regardless of nationality, status, race, ethnicity, class, caste, creed, religion or ideology, (dis)ability, age, gender, gender identity, or sexuality. Our assessments are scored without bias. In circumstances where a photograph is necessary, women who choose to face-veil can be photographed in a women-only room. Accommodated English language instruction and examinations are available for people with disabilities. Many of our staff are multilingual, and our goal is to have our staff reflect the diversity of our students. 

University of Toronto

English Testing Canada began as a program of New College, University of Toronto, and is now run independently.  Our practices follow the University of Toronto's guidelines for academic integrity. Each year, a community-engaged learning student from New College receives a university credit for working with us at ETC.
