CCL’s original five-year agreement with Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) has been extended an additional year, to March 31, 2010, without additional funding. In order to continue its core activities of research, and monitoring and reporting on the state of learning in Canada, CCL is streamlining its operations. CCL remains in active discussions with HRSDC regarding a future funding agreement beyond March 2010.
On April 6, 2009, CCL announced the following measures:
We deeply appreciate the time and expertise that knowledge centre staff and consortium members have contributed. Every effort will be made to ensure that the high quality work of the knowledge centres continues to be disseminated as widely as possible.
I hope that CCL can count on your continued support in our ongoing efforts to strengthen learning information and outcomes across Canada.
