Can I use TEFL to teach in an English-speaking country?

Using TEFL in Canada and other English-speaking places

A TEFL certificate can be used for teaching online from an English-speaking country as your students will be overseas. If you wish to teach within an English-speaking country like Canada with TEFL, please note it is not usually accepted. You may want to inquire with local ESL academies about the qualifications they require for teaching jobs.
