CIE's English Communication Program (ECP) is a non-credit program that gives U of T students who speak English as a second language the opportunity to further develop their communication skills in English, gain insight into Canadian culture and life at U of T, and share cross-cultural experiences.
Classes are facilitated by volunteers with teaching, cross-cultural, and international experience.
Most Summer ECP classes are 2 hours each week and start the week of May 22 (unless otherwise noted). They are 10 weeks long.
Most classes take place at CIE (Cumberland House, 33 St. George St.) except for activities/classes planned that visit other locations.

Due to the high demand for classes and out of respect for the many students who wish to take our classes but cannot get in, we have implemented the following attendance policy:
If you miss two sessions without notifying your instructor or the ECP office you will be dropped from the class and a student from the waiting list will be admitted in your place.
No refunds will be given after the second scheduled class, or due to class cancellation.
If you are a new BookIT user, you are advised to register with the system in advance of the registration. Your UTORid and password are required to use the system.
If you have an accessibility requirement or special circumstance and would prefer to register in person, please contact our office at 416-946-8509 and we will do our best to accommodate you.
