Advantage E/J is a school that...

Advantage English School E/J is an English language school located in Whistler, BC, CANADA, also known as the host resort of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Our school has been operating since 2003. We are a PTIB (Private Training Institution Branch) designated learning institution recognized by the Ministry of Advanced Education. Our warm and friendly school offers high quality education with a variety of courses to suit the needs of students from around the world who can enjoy outdoor sports as they study English.

Our Mission

The purpose of our school is to provide students whose native language is not English with language lessons in a friendly and supportive environment so that they can refine and strengthen their language skills. Our teachers and staff ensure that each student is meeting his or her goals by talking to the students individually about their goals at the beginning of the course, checking the student progression throughout the duration of their studies and filling out a progress report at the end.

Fall enrollment

July 20th, 2020
Good news everyone looking to study in Canada in the near future. “support international students beginning a new program online this fall with Canadian learning institution, if their institution is offering the program online, so that they can pursue their education while ensuring everyone’s safety. These changes will give students more certainly about their ability to enter Canada once travel and health restrictions are eased in Canada and their own home counties. They mean that students will be eligible to work in Canada after graduation, even if they need to begin their studies will be eligible to work in Canada after graduation, even if they need to begin their studies online from overseas this fall. The changes will continue Canada’s reputation as a premier destination for international students and demonstrate the importance of the international student program and the contributions international students make to Canada. The new measures include:  
  • providing priority study-permit processing for students who have submitted a complete application online, to ensure that permits are processed as quickly as possible
  • allowing students to count the time spent pursuing their studies online abroad toward their eligibility for a post-graduation work permit, if they have submitted a study permit application and if at least 50% of their program is completed in Canada
  • providing reassurances to international students who cannot submit all of the documentation needed to complete processing of their applications, and who choose to pursue programs through distance learning, by implementing a temporary 2-stage approval process. The temporary process will allow applicants to count the time spent studying online abroad towards their post-graduation work permit once they receive an approval-in-principle, as long as they are able to satisfy all requirements and receive the full approval of their study permit application at a later date."
  More news will be arriving soon and we will keep you posted!
