Cornwall - May. 15, 2011 - This year, more people in Akwesasne, Alexandria, and Cornwall will be able to get literacy and basic skills upgrading and training that will help open the door to a good job and a stronger future.

Ontario’s 2011 Budget - Turning The Corner committed to permanently increase base funding to every literacy organization in the province. This additional funding will provide ongoing support to ensure literacy organizations can continue to deliver programs and serve more learners.

In Akwesasne, the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne Adult Education Program is receiving $100,000 to help 53 learners. In Alexandria, the (Projet Alpha) À La P.A.G.E. Inc. is receiving $137,000 to help 107 learners; meanwhile, the Upper Canada District School Board/LBS East is receiving $477,603 to help 225 learners.

In Cornwall, St. Lawrence College is receiving $281,472 to help 140 learners; meanwhile, the Tri-County (Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry) Literacy Council is receiving $153,786 to help 237 learners.

Literacy and basic skills training is part of the McGuinty government's Open Ontario plan to help everyone succeed and build a knowledge-based economy for the future.

“Ensuring every adult has the opportunity to upgrade their skills is one of the best investments we can make. Not only does it help more people succeed, but it builds a strong foundation for our local economy.” said Jim Brownell, MPP for Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry
