The Community Learning Network (CLN) is a provincial non-profit association and registered Canadian charity. Our mission is to support Community Adult Learning Programs (CALPs) through leadership, resources, training and connections.
CALPs are grassroots community-based organizations funded by Alberta Advanced Education to provide, promote and increase access to foundational learning opportunities in areas such as:
- Adult Literacy
- English Language Learning
- Basic Computer Skills
- Foundational Life Skills
- Family Literacy
- Community Capacity Building
The CLN is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, who are also Community Adult Learning Program staff and board members.
Our team includes 12 staff members located in communities throughout the province, dedicated to providing relevant and responsive support at the provincial and regional levels to the more than 120 Community Adult Learning Programs (CALPs) across Alberta. Our provincial office is located in Edmonton, Alberta.
We work in close collaboration with our partners, funders and system stakeholders to achieve our vision, where
Community Adult Learning Programs are the hub for adult learning in every community.
Community Learning Network is supported by funding from the Government of Alberta.
