Announcement: New Course from GLA

2011 Canadian Federal Election – About Canada Votes 2011

On May 2, 2011 Canada will be having a federal election to either re-elect our Prime Minister or elect a new Prime Minister.  Many experts agree that the Aboriginal vote is very important and in some cases, these votes may decide who the next Prime Minister of Canada is.  Good Learning Anywhere is offering a LIVE Centra course for learners interested in learning about voting in a Canadian election.

The course is not going to be a political debate.  It will focus on the importance of voting in Canada.  Questions that will be covered in this 2 hour course are: What is an election?  Why is it important to vote?  What is the history of Aboriginal voters in Canada?  Who can vote?  Where do people vote?  How do people vote?  Who are you voting for?  What impact does my vote have?

We are offering this course 3 times before the election.

  • Thursday April 14 – 10:30 am ET

Sign up for one of these dates by visiting our website: or by calling 1-866-550-0697.  If you have any questions, you can also contact Warren by email –

If you are new to online learning and using Centra, we recommend you register for an Introduction to Online Learning class prior to taking the elections course.
