About CLCs

Quebec’s English school network embraced the community school philosophy in 2006, when the Ministry of Education introduced The Community Learning Centre Initiative (CLC) to support student achievement and contribute to the vitality of Quebec’s English-speaking minority language community.

Like other ‘community-school’ movements across the world, participating schools strengthen academic and developmental outcomes for youth by building up connections between schools, families, local organizations, regional and provincial bodies.  These connections set the stage for improved coordination and access to resources.  Follow the link to learn more about the community school movement at home and abroad.

LEARN’s Provincial Resource Team (PRT) provides participating schools with a framework for community school development, strategic networking opportunities, project and grant opportunities, digital tools and resources and ongoing professional development.
