Community Adult Learning Program Call for Applications
The Alberta Ministry of Advanced Education is inviting eligible organizations to apply for ongoing Community Adult Learning Program grant funding. Eligible organizations interested in serving foundational learners in the Municipal District of Bonnyville may apply.
The Community Adult Learning Program (CALP) provides funding and other supports to 121 community-based organizations to facilitate part-time, primarily non-formal, adult learning opportunities in more than 500 communities across Alberta.
Organizations funded through the CALP work towards the following vision:
Adults acquire and build on foundational learning skills through vibrant learning communities.
To make this vision a reality, funded organizations serve as visible access points for learners who have literacy and foundational learning needs, including adult literacy, numeracy, English language learning, basic computer skills, foundational life skills, and/or family literacy needs. Organizations are often the local learning hub in a community: in addition to providing adult foundational learners with access to learning opportunities, organizations work collaboratively with community partners to be able to give learners the information, referrals, and other supports they require to be successful in meeting their personal learning and employment goals.
Eligible organizations that have an interest in working towards the program’s vision are invited to apply for Community Adult Learning Program grant funding on an ongoing basis. The deadline for Applications is May 16, 2018, and details on how to apply can be found here.
If you have any questions, please contact Iona Neumeier, CALP Grant Manager for the East-Central Region, by email at Iona.Neumeier@gov.ab.ca or by phone at 780.427.5724.
Thank you and we look forward to receiving your applications!

MEDIA RELEASE NOVEMBER 17 2017
New ID 349 Funding Model Released
Municipal Affairs Minister Shaye Anderson released details today outlining a new funding formula for ID349 impacting a number of Municipalities within the Bonnyville region. On January 1, 2012, the Province of Alberta entered into an agreement with various Municipalities in North Eastern Alberta to reallocate Municipal taxes generated from assessment on the Cold Lake Air Weapons Range and area to the North of the Range. The rationale used by the Alberta Government to substantiate this reallocation is the sustainability of 4 Wing and the Air Base located within the City of Cold Lake. By doing so, the sustainability of the surrounding Municipalities and Districts were compromised as the City of Cold Lake received the bulk of the funding. The agreement subsequently expired January 1, 2017. This spring, the Town of Bonnyville met with surrounding Municipalities, Municipal Districts and Indigenous neighbors. Collaboratively, a new funding formula fairly distributing the ID 349 funds was developed and presented to Municipal Affairs Minister Shaye Anderson. After many consultations, the Minister announced a new formula, fairly distributing funds within the region, including our Indigenous neighbors. “We are so grateful for the collaborative efforts between Municipal Affairs and the region. The previous model emphasized funding for a targeted area; the new model is all encompassing. The dispersal of the funds will ensure that core infrastructure needs can be addressed within the region. The positive, progressive relationship between the Alberta Government and our region will be a successful collaboration model for all communities within the province to follow” Mayor Gene Sobolewski stated. Mayor Laura Papirny from the Village of Glendon echoed Mayor Sobolewski’s sentiments, and went on to add, “We are very grateful for this funding opportunity to provide us with resources to put toward our critical infrastructure funding needs.”
