The ELT research project, conducted in 2004, uncovered significant gaps in the delivery of language training for newcomers with advanced language skills. These gaps differ from province to province, and from large urban to smaller centre delivery. Notable was the lack of resources and supports for language training programs to do the work they have identified as key to immigrant success. These research findings support the need for the ELT Initiative.
