VernonNew Democrat MLA Harwinder Sandhu says people in Vernon will have more opportunities to improve their literacy, math skills, and digital skills thanks to increased funding for Community Adult Literacy Programs.

“It is too often that literacy skills become a barrier for people looking to enter the workforce,” said Harwinder Sandhu, MLA for Vernon-Monashee. “That’s why this funding is so important. Not only do these programs help remove barriers for people looking to build their skills, it means that people can participate more in their communities and support their families.”

The Literacy Society of the North Okanagan is receiving funding for their Community Adult Literacy Program. This community-based program is offered by trained volunteers and focus on basic literacy, numeracy, life skills and employment preparation, and can be a starting point towards high school completion and/or further education or training.

The New Democrat government invests $3.4 million annually for Community Adult Literacy Programs, as part of our commitment to giving people the skills and opportunities they need to succeed.
