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. We do not currently offer diploma programs but there are opportunities to complete University Arts & Sciences distance courses that can be used towards diploma and university programs.
