Founded in 1957, the Association of Canadian College and University Teachers of English (ACCUTE) was incorporated under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act in 2015. ACCUTE’s purpose, as ratified in 2015, is to promote the interests of those teaching and researching in the various fields of English Studies in Canadian colleges and universities by facilitating the dissemination and exchange of research and the exploration of professional issues, by organizing scholarly and professional meetings, by seeking to improve working conditions, by representing and promoting the scholarly and research interests of members before such bodies as provincial and federal granting agencies, and by supporting the interests and aspirations of members entering the profession.
