Regional Resource Leader: Debbie Cardinal

Executive Director, Cold Lake Community Learning Centre

came to work with the Cold Lake Community Learning Centre in April of 2004 as the Office Administration person. By October of 2005,I was asked to take on the role of Executive Director. In this role, I have embraced Lifelong Learning and with the diversity inherent in this position, manage to learn something new every week. I was raised in the Northwest Territories and after finishing school, worked for Canadian National Telecommunications, the Territorial Government and Canadian Coast Guard. My husband, who also worked for Coast Guard, was transferred to Fort McMurray, so we moved. I worked for Indian Affairs and then the Athabasca Tribal Corporation. 15 years later, we moved to Cold Lake where we plan to retire.

The Community Learning Network provides leadership, resources, and connections to over 80 Community Adult Learning Councils (CALCs) across Alberta.

Community Adult Learning Councils address the part-time,
non-credit learning needs of adults within specified geographic
boundaries. Currently 80 in number, these unique councils
consist of representatives of the local community who work together
to meet the program goals:

  • To improve the accessibility of learning opportunities in Alberta’s communities, especially for those individuals with special needs or barriers to learning.
  • To provide opportunities for Albertans to acquire important foundational skills such as literacy and English as a Second Language.
  • To address education, training and learning gaps in Alberta’s communities.
  • To mobilize community volunteers and other resources in support of learning.
  • To contribute to solving individual and community problemsthrough learning initiatives, in coordination and cooperation with related organizations.
