Everyone can learn!

ECALA allocates Advanced Education funding to organizations in Edmonton to provide literacy and foundational learning programs for adults. ECALA is recognized as a Granting Council by Alberta Advanced Education under the Community Adult Learning Program (CALP) Guidelines.

ECALA has invested in community-based adult learning in Edmonton since 1998 based on its’ vision of “Everyone can learn”. In 2018, ECALA’s investment grew to $2 million annually.

ECALA acknowledges that it operates and provides funding on our first people’s land which was originally named Amiskwaciwâskahikan (Beaver Hills House) and is now known as Edmonton.

Together with our Indigenous Working Group and Board of Directors, we acknowledge the First Peoples, our ancestors, the caregivers of Turtle Island.
