OTTAWA, March 22 /CNW Telbec/ - The Canadian Council on Learning will be reporting to Parliamentarians as its funding agreement with the federal government comes to an end. For six years, CCL has been Canada's authoritative voice on lifelong learning, sponsoring quality research, and helping decision-makers develop effective approaches in the quest to keep Canada competitive in the global knowledge-based economy.
Because its work is so important to the future prosperity of the country, CCL has organized a face-to-face encounter with legislators to brief them on the state of learning in Canada.
A group of MPs and senators, representing all parties in Parliament, will hear and discuss what CCL has discovered over the life of its mandate and CCL's principal findings and recommendations for the way forward in all phases of learning will be distributed to all parliamentarians and media attending.
Already, about two dozen MPs and senators have indicated they will be present, and CCL continues to urge all Parliamentarians who have an interest in Canada's learning future to attend.
What: The Canadian Council on Learning (CCL) will report to a group
of Parliamentarians on its most important findings and
conclusions from the last six years, and look ahead to the
challenges Canada must tackle in the field of lifelong
learning. It will also take the opportunity to deliver the
Council's annual report, "The State of Learning in Canada" for
2009 - 2010.
Who: Paul Cappon, President and CEO of CCL and senior staff
A group of MPs and Senators from all parties in Parliament
When: 8:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. March 30, 2010
