MAPLE RIDGENew Democrat MLAs says people in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows will have more opportunities to improve their literacy, math skills, and digital skills thanks to increased funding for Community Adult Literacy Programs.

“Literacy is an important skill that many of us take for granted,” said Lisa Beare, MLA for Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows. “Our government knows how essential it is to support organizations like the Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Katzie Community Literacy Society, who deliver literacy programming for all ages to help people in the community thrive.”

Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Katzie Community Literacy Society is receiving funding for their Community Adult Literacy Program, “Lifelong Learning for Adults.” These community-based programs are 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.

“Everyone should have the opportunity to learn skills that help with everyday tasks, like applying for jobs or schooling and filling out forms online or at the doctors office, for example. This funding helps make sure that adults across the province who may experience challenges with literacy have access to programs that will make navigating the world we live in easier,” said Bob D’Eith, MLA for Maple Ridge-Mission

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.
