English as a Second Language (ESL) Support - ESL programs are intended for students whose first language is not English or is a variety of English significantly different from that used for instruction in Ontario schools and who arrive in Canada with age-appropriate first-language literacy skills and educational backgrounds. Secondary students receive a credit for their ESL language courses but the courses are not linked to any grade since placement is based on English language proficiency.

ELD programs are intended for students whose first language is not English or is a variety of English significantly different from that used for instruction in Ontario schools and who arrive in Canada with significant gaps in their education. They are most often from countries in which their access to education has been limited so that they have had limited opportunities to develop language and literacy skills in any language.
