Funding supports community adult literacy programs in B.C.

Anyone seeking to improve their reading, writing, math, and digital skills will continue to benefit from access to free adult literacy programs across the province. Every year, B.C. invests $3.4 million to support the Community Adult Literacy Program (CALP). These funds directly support the literacy programs that help people develop skills in a variety of subjects: for example, numeracy, life skills, and employment preparations to name a few. In the upcoming year, CALP funding will support 102 literacy programs done by 71 providers in 132 communities throughout B.C. These free, community-based programs enable people to gain necessary skills to pursue jobs and further educational opportunities.
