Welcome to Maple Leaf Academy

Maple Leaf Academy (MLA), a language school, has long provided ESL (English as a Second Language) and LINC (Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada) programs to new immigrants to Canada and visiting International Students. Our experience and expertise provides students with a focus on language skills for life in an English Speaking country.

Maple Leaf Academy fully commits to, and acts according to the Alberta Designation Requirements for Institutions with International Student Programs(0114623912037). Maple Leaf Academy is a member of Languages Canada.

Each day, students are exposed to multiple teachers. They focus on different language strands Listening, Speaking, Reading, Writing, and Pronunciation. This gives them exposure to a variety of English dynamics found in North America. Our teachers have expertise in teaching each strand.


The LINC program is designed to help our newcomers adjust to life in Canada. The majority of our students over the past 20 years have started new lives in Calgary. English skills, learned at MLA, have been pre-requisite to entrance in Canadian universities and colleges, professional employment in Canadian companies, and the ability to live productively in Canada.

International students take their English language skills back to their own country. They are provided unique opportunities to study English courses aimed at communicating effectively, in real life situations, in an English-speaking country.
