Welcome to ECALA

We are an Edmonton based adult community learning association, with a mandate to help individuals access non-credit educational opportunities throughout our city.

If you have educational needs, please visit our Programs & Services page or if you are a non-profit organization and want information on our funding, please visit our Grants & Funding page.

We have proudly served the city of Edmonton since 1998, and are funded by the Government of Alberta.

We hope our revised website will provide our members and guests with a quicker and easier experience finding the resources we have available.

Welcome, Updates and Funding Application Deadline / Reminders

ECALA would like to thank everyone who attended our Annual General meeting on September 30th, 2015.  At the AGM, new Board Directors – Dorothy Lowrie and Leila Mansour – were welcomed on to the Board and we said goodbye to some old friends – Bob Bruinsma, Alain Bertrand, Tammy Goodwin and Cheryl Whitelaw. Thank you to all Board Directors for their new, previous or continuing service.
At the October 21 Board meeting, elections were held for ECALA’s Officers and we are excited to announce that the following people were nominated and subsequently elected to serve:
Chisom Okonkwo, Board Chair
