Since 1991, English Language Tutoring for the Ottawa Community (ELTOC) has been providing individualized and accessible home-based English as a Second Language (ESL) tutoring to eligible adult newcomers who cannot attend regular ESL classes by matching them to trained volunteers in the community. The organization is funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) through its Language Instruction to Newcomers to Canada (LINC) program. ELTOC makes a significant difference in the lives of newcomers each year, helping them to gain confidence and community ties that help them to integrate into Canadian Society. In response to Covid-19, ELTOC has been delivering its program online since March 2020. See www.eltoc.ca for more information about ELTOC.
