We Are Better Together

Our many long-standing partnerships enable us to support and respond to the diverse and changing needs of students and their families. We work closely with community organizations, government agencies, post-secondary institutions and donors to remove barriers to learning, provide learning enrichment opportunities and enhance well-being for students.

Supporting English as Additional Language Learners

This school year, CBE is supporting more and more students who are learning English as an additional language (EAL). In fact, about 40,000 students, or 29 per cent of all CBE students are EAL.

To ensure students are set up for success, they are assessed through our Welcome Centre and then supported in many ways as they transition to CBE schools.
