COMMUNITY LEARNING CENTRE

LMAC Community Learning Centre

Schools, vocational and adult training centres are not only part of the educational system, they are part of the communities they serve. This connection is important in Anglophone communities, especially those which only represent a small percentage of the total population in their area.

It is for this reason that the Ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport (MELS) supports the development of 71 Community Learning Centres that are located in schools across Quebec.

Parent Survey

Parents play an important role in the intellectual, social and emotional growth of their children and your involvement in their learning is important.

In collaboration with the Quebec Federation of Home and School Associations, English Parents’ Committee Organization, Canadian Parents for French, and the network of Community Learning Centres (CLCs), LEARN is evaluating and updating the services/resources available to parents in Quebec's English school system.

To adequately assess your needs, we need your input and ask you to please take a few minutes to complete a short online survey:

What is a Community Learning Centre?

o Schools that are Community Learning Centres invest in partnerships that provide a range of services and activities, often beyond the school day, to help meet the needs of learners, their families, and the wider community. Their aim is to support the holistic development of citizens and communities.

Some of the key results anticipated from CLCs are:

  • Provide access to the conditions deemed necessary for student success
  • Respond to the particular culture and needs of the communities they serve
  • Provide services that are accessible to the broader community
  • Deliver a range of services that are self-supporting and sustainable over time
  • Integrate existing services and resources with those available from external agencies
  • Develop financial/resource partnerships that insure long-term sustainability
  • Resonate within their communities as a successful response to their needs
  • Demonstrate flexible and innovative approaches to service delivery
