The year 2020 marks the English Language Centre's (ELC) 50th anniversary!

Over five decades, extraordinary people and events have grown the English Language Centre at UVic into an institution of excellence. Join us in celebrating the past, present, and future of the ELC at UVic during our year-long golden anniversary.

Throughout 2020, we will be hosting celebrations to highlight our community, alumni, students, staff, teachers, homestay families, and Cultural Assistants —all of whom have shaped the last 50 years of the ELC.
