The Community Adult Learning Program supports over 120 community-based learning organizations who provide Adult Literacy and Foundational Learning opportunities in over 430 communities in every region of the province. These Community Adult Learning Programs (CALPs) are supported by the Community Learning Network, who works collaboratively with diverse system stakeholders and partners, to provide CALP staff with the professional development, training and support services they need to drive relevant, quality adult learning.

The Community Adult Learning Program is funded and supported by the Government of Alberta.

The Community Adult Learning Program works with providers to achieve the following outcomes:

  1. Adult learners are proficient in foundational skills.
  2. Adult learners participate in further learning opportunities.
  3. Adult learners navigate the learning system.
  4. Adult learners benefit from learning opportunities within their communities.

Northern Lakes College has established Community Adult Learning Programs in eight communities within the NLC’s service region. Northern Lakes College is able to enhance the entire adult learning continuum, bringing foundational learning, or Basic Education Level (BEL), programming and employability skills classes to residents in these communities. Students are able to access the local NLC campus to take the online courses, use the computer labs, and access other resources on site. The cost of books and tuition for the BEL courses in these communities is covered by the CALP funding. Programming is available to both full-time and part-time students.
