Mariya Afzal - Director, British Council Canada

Welcome to the British Council Canada website.

British Council is the UK's leading cultural relations organization that has delivered excellent work for more than 80 years in over 110 countries. 

Our work in Canada is spread across through a wide array of partnerships within Arts, Education & Society and English & Exams. We connect organizations and individuals from Canada, United Kingdom and from other countries in order to share creative ideas to achieve social innovation that helps build stronger communities. 

We have an office in Toronto and Montreal, and have been working through partnerships in Canada for more than 55 years. We strive to engage diverse audiences through our programming with an objective to create equal opportunities and social inclusion in everything we do. 

I encourage you to explore our website and find out how you could be involved in some of the programmes and services we have to offer.
