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

“Adult literacy programs provide people with essential skills for daily life, including filling out application forms, understanding health information, making a household budget, and reading labels,” said Bowinn Ma, MLA for North Vancouver-Lonsdale. “These programs are also an important step for many people as they work towards their career and life goals, and I’m thrilled to know we’re helping people gain new skills that will strengthen our North Vancouver community for generations to come.”

North Shore Neighbourhood House and St. John Evangelist Anglican Church are receiving funding for their Community Adult Literacy Program. 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.

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.
