Welcome to ACLA!

The Canadian Association of Applied Linguistics / L’Association canadienne de linguistique appliquée, also known as ACLA, is an officially bilingual scholarly association with approximately 200 members from across Canada and elsewhere. ACLA’s overarching objective is the promotion of research and teaching in all areas of applied linguistics across Canada. Its specific objectives are to oversee the organization of the annual ACLA conference and the biannual publication of The Canadian Journal of Applied Linguistics. ACLA is affiliated internationally with the International Association of Applied Linguistics (AILA) and, on the national level, with the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences (CFHSS) under the auspices of which it holds its annual conference.
