Educate. Inspire. Grow. In 1986 the Faculty of Education had its first foray into inviting teachers from other countries to recruit Canadian teachers for overseas schools. TORF was formalized in 1989, and we have placed thousands of teachers in schools in hundreds of countries since then. TORF is the recruiting fair of choice in Canada for many international schools, all of which are independent, accredited schools.
The 29th Annual TORF is on January 27-29, 2017. See more details.
Five of our PhD students will present their research at the American Association for Applied Linguistics (AAAL) Conference, which will be held March 18-21, 2017 in Portland, Oregon.
