Graduate Centre for Academic Communication (GCAC)
“GCAC provides graduate students with advanced training in academic writing and speaking. GCAC offers five types of support designed to target the needs of both native and non-native speakers of English: non-credit courses, single-session workshops, individual writing consultations, writing intensives, and a list of additional resources for academic writing and speaking. All of GCAC’s programs are free. While the workshops function on a drop-in basis, writing centre consultations require an appointment, and courses and writing intensives require registration.” – GCAC
