Settlement News Across the Province

SNAP's focus is sharing your stories about settlement and language instruction programs, successful initiatives, best practices - and challenges. Published by TESL Ontario 6 times per year, SNAP will also have notices of upcoming conferences, workshops or other professional development opportunities. The newsletter will appear in electronic format in English, with a toggle button to take the reader to the French edition. It will be delivered via email directly to readers' inboxes.

Readers can forward information they wish to share with other settlement staff and ESL instructors for inclusion in SNAP.

Please send your information or ideas to Lee Weisser, Editor, snap@teslontario.org.

NÉO (Nouvelles : Établissement en Ontario), est disponible ici.

Note: Earlier versions of the newsletter are available for download in PDF format.
