MIRSSA welcomes new associate member

MIRSSA is happy to welcome the University of Winnipeg’s English Language Program as a new associate member.  The ELP is home to both the Global Welcome Centre and English for Specific Purposes.  

English for Specific Purposes (ESP) is a learner-centred approach to teaching English as an Additional Language, which focuses on developing communicative competence in a specific discipline such as academics, accounting, agrology, business, IT, teaching, and engineering. Students are also exposed to Canadian workplace or academic culture and real world communication practice.

The Global Welcome Centre (GWC) offers academic services that help permanent residents living in Manitoba gain access to and succeed in higher education. Both programs are funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada and operate under the umbrealla of The English Language Program at the University of Winnipeg.
