New options for courses are now available. The application deadline is Saturday, April 11 at 5 PM.
The successful recipient will be notified the next day by email and telephone, and should contact the embassy in Ottawa right away.

On behalf of the OMLTA/AOPLV Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce to all FSL educators in Ontario that Projet à Québec will be running again this summer. A special thank you goes to the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage and the Government of Ontario for their financial support of this exciting professional development opportunity. New this year, Projet à Québec will provide professional development opportunities for 50 French as a second language teachers (Core French, Extended French, French Immersion) from Catholic and Public English-language district school boards across Ontario.
Le programme de 2015 aura lieu à la ville de Québec du 13 au 22 juillet. Cette formation intensive de dix jours se concentre sur le développement des compétences linguistiques des enseignants et à la sensibilisation culturelle à travers divers ateliers et excursions. Les frais des sessions, les excursions et l’hébergement sont pris en charge. Les lauréats auront seulement l’obligation de payer leur voyage aller-retour et les repas.
The deadline to submit an application is Friday April 10th at 5:00 pm. If you are interested in applying for this unique professional development opportunity, please see the following links:

The latest issue of the OMLTA newsletter, “Communication” is now online!
Great strategies, activities, reports, interviews, and thought-provoking articles are now available for you in our “Members Only” section of the web site.
The OMLTA continues to work for you, and the latest issue of “Communication” will undoubtedly be a benefit to all of our members… and future members.
My favourite memory is of dancing with Mike Milhausen (my inspiration for becoming an FSL teacher) at Pete Cecile’s Spring Conference (2007), during the Friday night dance party!
