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

“Investing in community literacy programs helps workers to improve their skills and advance in the workforce,” said Harry Bains, MLA for Surrey-Newton. “Literacy and numeracy are key skills in our society and equip people to succeed in life and at work.”

DIVERSEcity Community Resources Society, Progressive Intercultural Community Services Society (PICS), and READ Surrey White Rock Society are receiving funding for their Community Adult Literacy Programs. 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.
