 We are always working to advocate for equitable access to learning opportunities for all ELLs and understand that this work can be challenging.  Our work is focussed on advocating for ELLs within Ontario schools in Canada.  We learn with and from some of the most diverse student populations in the world.   ERGO members are always looking to connect with and learn from ESL/ELD educators, researchers and experts from around the world to better support ELLs, their families, and their educators across Ontario schools.
