About the Canadian EAP Survey Research Project
A recent review of our English Language Studies program revealed no equivalent programs (in breadth or scope) at research institutions across Canada. This situation highlighted the need for a survey research project to better understand the landscape and political economy of English language education across Canadian post-secondary institutions (colleges and universities). Drawing on quantitative data collected via a Canada-wide survey, this project will chart the landscape of English language instruction across post-secondary institutions.
