ESL and Portug Teacher -Looking for job in Toronto


Hi everybody,
I'm planning on moving to Canada soon, as my partner has been offered a job in Toronto and I'd like to join him.
I teach English as a Second Language and Translation Methodologies and Theory here in Portugal in two Universities. I have also taught ESOL in Eastbourne, England, in the intensive summer courses in the University of Brighton. I have also worked as a Portuguese as a Second Language Teacher and translator in the past. I have a Master’s degree in Language Didactics and am now writing my PhD thesis.
I heard that, although I have been teaching ESL for more than 10 years now, I should get a Canadian ESL teaching diploma before applying for any jobs in Toronto. I have already started filling out forms to apply for an ESL teacher course in the International House in Toronto.
Could I have some advice on how to look for jobs in this area?
Thank you!
All the best for you all,
Daniela Coelho
