‘LC missions are of very high level and this goes hand in hand with the highest standards of quality Languages Canada is known for among agents.”

Martine Allard, Director for ELI at Seneca College

'The missions are an opportunity to reach a wider market by going to a single place, offering greater value than visiting each agency separately.'

Anthony Stille, English School of Canada​
