The Adult Literacy world is facing some tough times in 2011.
Cutbacks are expected to hit all of Ontario’s Literacy and Basic Skills organizations, though the effects will be felt throughout Ontario, in workplaces, social services and homes.
Good Learning Anywhere started in 2003, reaching people in remote areas of Ontario, and giving them a chance to upgrade their skills.
2009 was a big year for Good Learning Anywhere. The Province’s Budget Initiative for 2009-10, 2010 -11 gave our program the opportunity to grow and reach so many more people in need of basic upgrading and literacy skills. Many Ontarians living in remote and rural areas have had the ability to access services previously not available to them – and now may be denied these services again.
Now, with that two year funding about to disappear, Good Learning Anywhere, along with Literacy groups across Ontario, will be forced to cut back services, and in some instances, shut their doors.
But all is not lost.
