Please read about school policy.
Canada College of Education Policy
CCE offers both weekly and monthly session start dates for ESL and FSL courses. Students can register for English (ESL) and French (FSL), beginning course instruction on any Monday. There is no minimum requirement since we provide different levels of language classes, although our full-time ESL classes operate at an Intermediate English Level. The minimum age requirement to participate in the group lessons is 16 years old and 5-15 for private lessons.
We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for our International students. Here at CCE all international students, visitors, skilled workers and refugees all pay the same low tuition fees as Canadian citizens (domestic students). Students have the option to apply for French or English classes.
International Students – FSL and ESL programs
Enrollment through Direct Admission is the primary method that international students use in order to facilitate their admission process at a low cost. Through Direct Admission, students can apply for admission directly to our school without a mediator or agent, though they can apply using their agents if they prefer. We work with agents from all over the world.
International students – How to apply for admission?
Students can either apply for a study permit or renew their current visa.
In order to be admitted to Canada College of Education students must follow procedure outlined below:
1-Pay a non-refundable admission fee of $125 CAD and at least the cost of the first month’s tuition for their program. When a student has arrived in Canada they must pay their remaining tuition. Three month’s worth of tuition must be paid by the student before their first class. In some cases, we allow international students to pay their tuition fee on a monthly basis.
***Note: Students who are accepted by Canadian Immigration will not be charged a monthly registration fee. As long as they are studying at CCE, students will not be charged an admission fee or a registration fee again.***
2-Provide a scanned copy by e-mail of their passport (only the first page).
3- Scan and email a passport-sized photo of themselves.
4- Provide their credit card details on the CCE registration form for application processing.
Fill out the CCE application (4 pages) form (international students only).
Upon receiving all the required documents, we will issue a Letter of Admission (LOA). In general, it takes approximately five business day to receive the LOA.
International Students accepted by IRCC
Students who have been granted a study permit by the IRCC before arriving to our school will be greeted by our administrative staff. These students must present a copy of their visa, insurance policy and are required to sign a student contract. After the registration process has been completed, our staff will show our newly-admitted students to their classes, offering assistance to students requiring additional help. Students can schedule appointments with our program advisor.
Domestic Student Admission
Prospective students with Permanent Residency or Canadian citizenship may apply for admission to our school at any time. These students must fill in a registration form indicating the duration of the course they want enroll in along with their chosen method of payment.
An evaluation test will be conducted for both residential and international students. Students will be placed in a course level corresponding to their exam results. At CCE, we ensure that each student is placed in a level where they feel comfortable, confident and excited to learn. There are three general levels: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. In some special cases we may combine private lessons with a group course (“Booster Program”) in order to produce better results. Students will progress through the course until they achieve their desired goal. CCE also offers IELTS and TOEFL preparation (for academic purposes) and CELPIP preparation (for work placement or immigration).
Using the aforementioned methods students can easily achieve their educational objectives.
Low Tuition Fee Policy
At CCE we believe that education is a right not a privilege. For this reason we have lowered our tuition fees significantly and do not charge tax for English ESL and French FSL courses. All of our courses are available to Canadian citizens as well as non-citizens. We charge the same low fees for international students, visitors, skilled workers, refugees and other statuses, as we do for Canadian citizens.
Attendance in class is mandatory. Students are responsible for their own attendance. Students who are registered for a group class cannot reschedule, cancel or modify their enrolment. It is the student’s sole responsibility to attend classes. There are no make-up classes, compensation or class extensions for missing hours. Students must attend their course of study in its entirety. Therefore, students are not permitted to partially attend courses. To remain in good academic standing with CCE, the student must attend at least 80% of the class session.
Students who are registered for private lessons may be able to reschedule or modify their schedules by notifying CCE administration staff at least 24 hours in advance. Students who fail to provide adequate notice will have an hour’s lesson deducted from their account. The course length for individual lessons is dictated by the number of hours a student purchases. For example, if a student registers for 12 hours of private lessons then the maximum time they have to complete their course is 12 weeks. If a student does not complete the course within this time frame the remaining lessons will be cancelled. Lastly, students must meet for at least 1.5 hours per session.
Semi Private Lessons
Students who are registered in semi private lessons must always attend lessons with their partner. If one student attends a class while the other is absent, there will not be a makeup class or refund for the missing class(es). Students must notify administration staff at least 24 hours prior to their appointment if they want to modify, reschedule or cancel a semi private session.
Leave of Absence
After 12 weeks of study students may be eligible for a Leave of Absence. Please note that students cannot ask for a Leave of Absence prior to study. An authorized Leave of Absence from CCE should not exceed four weeks. If students take a four week Leave of Absence (or less) we will not deduct any tuition fees from their account. However, if a student takes a Leave of Absence that exceeds four weeks, we will deduct a monthly fee from their student account. Students must possess a valid Visa at all times throughout their period of study. When students return from a Leave of Absence, they will rejoin the same course group unless another arrangement is made with our staff.
- A student must hold valid visa
- A student must have completed at least 12 weeks of study
- A student must be in good standing (more than 80% attendance)
- Tuition must not be in arrears
- Request for Leave of Absence must not exceed 4 academic weeks
Canada College of Education offers courses that are mainly delivered through classroom instruction. Some CCE courses can be delivered online through Distance Learning.
Students can obtain a certificate of completion in all languages such as French, English, Spanish and the like. To be eligible for the certificate you need to attend at least 96 hours of class instructions and positive teacher’s note at CCE. For some courses like skill training may be possible to obtain it at about 20 hours of class instructions.
No Drinking/ No Drugs
The legal age to consume and purchase alcohol in the province of Ontario is 19 years old. CCE has a policy that prohibits all CCE students from drinking alcohol and/or using drugs on school premises. Buying, selling or possessing drugs is also prohibited.
Dispute Resolution Policy
Sometimes a disagreement or dispute may arise between students or students and CCE. In the event of a dispute between a student and CCE, the student may follow the Dispute Resolution Policy as outlined below:
Step 1: The dispute must be brought immediately to the attention of a CCE Program Coordinator. The Program Coordinator will then facilitate a cooperative dialogue with the student in order to clarify student concerns and arrive at a reasonable solution. If a reasonable solution is not reached after this, see Step 2.
Step 2: A meeting with the Program Director must be scheduled within one week of the initial meeting in Step 1. The student and the Program Director will meet in order to attempt to reach a reasonable solution. If this step has not proven successful then, see Step 3.
Step 3: If the meeting with the Program Director remains unsuccessful then the student will be asked to submit a written complaint. The Program Director will consider the complaint and respond in writing, outlining a solution within five business days.
Step 4: If Step 3 is not accepted by the student then a mediator, approved by both parties, will assist in resolving the issue. If the mediator find the student‘s demand is not reasonable, then the student must pay all associated cost for the school.
Note: The Canada College of Education will communicate the mechanism of any decision to the student or his/her representative in writing.
Canada is a multicultural country that values and promotes inclusion and diversity. Students come from diverse backgrounds, cultures, nationalities and beliefs. In all cases students must be treated with respect. Racism and hate of any kind will not be tolerated at our school. The school environment must remain safe for all of our students to learn.
If a student exhibits uncontrollable, violent or disruptive behavior, this student must be referred to the Program Director for appropriate action to be taken. If a student continues to disturb or disrupt the classroom environment, they may be suspended or dismissed from CCE.
Students are expected to abide by the following classroom guidelines.
Students at CCE must:
- Respect the attendance policy
- complete all assignments and examinations on time
- pay tuition fees according to CCE policy (students must not have an outstanding balance)
Students at CCE are prohibited from:

Canada College of Education uses a placement test and/or language evaluation to place students in a suitable class. Students are admitted to French as a Second Language (FSL) and English as a Second Language (ESL) courses on a weekly basis. CCE closes during statutory holidays and approximately two weeks over Christmas and the New Year.
We are accredited by Languages Canada. Upon completion of the course students must take an examination. In order to pass students must achieve a grade of 60% or higher. If a student does not achieve the passing grade then they must repeat the course.
Academic dishonesty is also known as academic misconduct and refers to any type of deceitful or wrong doing that might occur in formal academic exercise. It can be in form of plagiarism, cheating or deception.
- Plagiarism: simply put plagiarism is defined as the adoption or reproduction of someone else’s work without any acknowledgment to the original source. At CCE students must submit their own work. Reproducing or copying the work of other classmate is strictly prohibited.
- Cheating: refers to receiving unauthorized help – both direct and indirect – from another student during an examination or test period. Cheating can occur verbally, through the passing of written notes or via cell phone and other electronic devices. All forms of cheating are strictly prohibited.
- Deception: tricking teachers and tutors by claiming false information is a form of academic dishonesty. For example, alleging that assignments or that works have been handed in on time – when they have not been – is a form of deception.
Entering University: We help students with choosing a suitable institution among one of the reputable universities in Toronto. We provide IELTS preparation courses and help students to pass these tests and obtain the high scores that are required for entering university. We also hosting the IELTS test at Canada College of Education each month. Students can take Academic Preparation courses at CCE.
The Government of Canada does not cover medical expenses for foreign students. Students at CCE can get inexpensive insurance while enrolled at Canada College. It is mandatory to have insurance prior to starting your first class.
Home stay can range anywhere from $750 to $1200 per month. We will inform students how to go about the process of renting. Once students are accepted by Canada Immigration (IRCC), CCE will assist with finding a safe and affordable home stay in Toronto.
Students are responsible for daily transportation. CCE will not provide transportation for students.
Job in Canada
CCE will help students who have a work permit to find a good, suitable job. In addition to general ESL classes we may provide extra classes at students’ request and at extra cost, to prepare them for job interview. The instructors can help students to find a better job. The career classes, which are designed as private lessons, will assist newcomers to become familiar with job searching, and using their skills and experience to find a good job.
The first class will be considered a trial lesson. Students may choose to withdraw from the class with a full refund of their tuition fees after the first class if it does not meet your expectations. In order to qualify for a full refund, you must notify administration immediately after the first lesson. Students who contact administration late will not be able to receive a refund. In addition, there will be no refund for the one-time $45 registration fee. The $45 CDN non-refundable registration fee applies only once, as long as you are studying at CCE you will never have to pay any registration fees again!
Canadian students who have enrolled in a part time, full time or private lessons course(s) can request a refund only after their first session (first class attendance). We do not provide any late refunds.
International students who are applying from outside or within Canada and are granted a study permit will not be refunded under any circumstances. If any tuition fee is paid in advance, it can only be refunded when the student submits their refusal letter from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Canada College of Education ONLY accepts the refusal letter from IRCC. As soon as a student is granted with their study permit, (regardless to if he/she comes to Canada or not) we are unable to provide you with a refund.
If you have applied for less than 6 months and have obtained a Letter of Admission from CCE, you will not be eligible for any form of refund. Please read more about refund policy before signing the required forms. The tuition fees are non-transferable.
Transfers: International and local students can transfer from other schools to CCE and receive a Letter of Admission for immigration purposes. Students can register and receive our discounted package. Students who are dismissed will not be eligible for a refund. International students who wish to change schools are required to notify us 30 days prior to departure.

International Student Consent Form
Notice of Collection of Personal Information and Consent
(Ontario Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development)
International students seeking a study permit to attend a post-secondary learning institution in Ontario must attend a post-secondary institution designated by Ontario for the purposes of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (Canada). This is often referred to as the International Student Program (“ISP”).
Under the ISP, private postsecondary institutions are designated by Ontario on an annual basis. As a result, private postsecondary institutions that wish to remain designated apply for designation annually.
At the time that you are asked to read and sign this document, you are (1) applying to be enrolled in an institution that is applying for designation for the first time, (2) applying to be enrolled in a designated institution, or (3) enrolled in a designated institution. If you are enrolled in an institution that is currently designated, the institution may be applying for further designation annually.
When reviewing an institution’s application for designation under the ISP, the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (the “Ministry”) conducts a site assessment to verify the information provided in the institution’s application with respect to its educational policies and procedures. The Ministry may also monitor institutions that are designated to determine whether those institutions are complying with the terms and conditions of designation.
As part of the site assessment and the Ministry’s ongoing monitoring of designated institutions, the Ministry reviews a representative sample of student and prospective student records, such as student and prospective student contracts, registration forms, records of enrollment, documents pertaining to academic assessment and progress, and other documents contained in the student or prospective student file. The Ministry also may need to make copies of student and prospective student records in order to complete its review of the institution’s (1) application for designation or (2) ongoing compliance with the terms and conditions of designation.
Your consent is requested to allow the Ministry to access the personal information you have provided to the institution that may be contained in your student records. Without your consent, the Ministry cannot access your records as may be required in order to assess the institution’s application for designation or ongoing compliance with designation conditions.
The Ministry collects and uses this information under the authority of ss. 38(2) and 39(1)(a) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (Canada) and its Regulations. Questions about the collection, use and disclosure of this information may be addressed to:
