Just minutes from the Kettle River, this centre hosts a variety of programs serving the needs of the local community.
The Grand Forks Learning Centre is located downtown, just off Highway 3 (Crowsnest Highway). We offer Community Education and Workplace Training (CEWT) programs and Academic Upgrading (formerly Adult Basic Education) courses.
