VANCOUVER – New Democrat MLA Melanie Mark says people in Vancouver will have more opportunities to improve their literacy, math skills, and digital skills thanks to increased funding for Community Adult Literacy Programs.

“Access to community programs that improve financial and digital literacy can literally save lives,” said Melanie Mark, MLA for Vancouver-Mount Pleasant. “For too long, previous governments didn’t invest in programs to help people get the skills they need to thrive. Our government believes that education is the great equalizer. Today’s announcement will reduce barriers and open doors for people to be empowered with the skills they need on the jobsite and within the community.”

The following organizations are receiving funding through Vancouver Community College for their Community Adult Literacy Programs:

  • Coast Mental Health Clubhouse – Coast Clubhouse Career Literacy 101
  • Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House – Family Literacy Outreach Program

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.
