Call for Applications
Community Adult Learning Program


The Alberta Ministry of Advanced Education is inviting eligible organizations to apply for a two-year probationary Community Adult Learning Program grant funding. Eligible organizations interested in serving foundational learners in the town of Elk Point may apply.

The Community Adult Learning Program (CALP) provides funding and other supports to over 100 community-based organizations to facilitate part-time, primarily non-formal, adult learning opportunities in communities across Alberta.

Organizations funded through the CALP work towards the following vision:

Changing lives through adult foundational learning in connected communities.

To make this vision a reality, funded organizations serve as visible access points for learners who have literacy and foundational learning needs. These needs include adult literacy, numeracy, English language learning, basic digital skills, and/or foundational life skills, and can be addressed through group learning such as a class or family literacy program or through one-on-one or small group tutoring. Organizations are often the local learning hub in a community: in addition to providing adult foundational learners with access to learning opportunities, organizations work collaboratively with community partners to be able to give learners the information, referrals, and other supports they require to be successful in meeting their personal learning and/or employment goals.

Eligible organizations that have an interest in working towards the program’s vision are invited to apply for Community Adult Learning Program grant funding on a probationary period. The deadline for Applications is June 3, 2019, and details on how to apply can be found here.

If you have any questions, please contact Iona Neumeier, CALP Grant Manager for the East-Central Region, by email at Iona.Neumeier@gov.ab.ca or by phone at 780.427.5724
Thank you and we look forward to receiving your applications!

Did You Know?

Village of Elk Point Formed, 1938
In the words of J.C. Jensen "We have functioned barely a year and as the first Council we feel at this date, that justifiable pride can be taken in the solvency of the village finances, and in the local improvements that have been carried out. We do not claim infallibility but we have sincerely tried to provide the greatest good for the greatest number. We feel a pride in our village. We hope that it may grow more beautiful, become ever more conscious of the civic pride and truly be a community of which the younger growing generation can always look back to as a sphere of pleasant memories. Our aim is to foster the feeling beyond our confines, that we need them as well as their need of us."
