Since 1970, annual conferences or colloquiums have been held to bring together members from the Canadian Association of Language Teachers (CASLT). Each year, many second language teachers have a need to meet in a forum in which they may exchange pertinent ideas and become acquainted with research in the field.
In 2009, a new brand was launched for the biennial CASLT national conference for second language educators, Languages Without Borders.
