The Antigonish County Adult Learning Association (ACALA) is a community, not-for-profit organization. We have provided adult and family learning opportunities to over 2,200 learners since 1994. Our main office is located in the People’s Place Library in the town of Antigonish, but we regularly provide programs in a variety of sites in Antigonish County. We believe “everyone is a lifelong learner”.
ACALA's mission statement and mandate include the following goals:
- To support and promote lifelong learning
- To promote literacy networking and awareness
- To encourage and support learning initiatives in partnership with adult learners, volunteers, educators, school boards, government departments and other community organization
* ACALA and the Antigonish Career Resource Centre (ACRC) hosted the inaugural Antigonish Career Fair in June 2015. We are planning to hold the second Antigonish Career Fair on Wednesday, June 8, 2016 at the People's Place Library from 11-3.
