Uneath This Buried Treasure found that Adult Learning Centres and Adult Liteacy Programs have been severly underfunded for years.  Funding has remained flat; ALCs and ALPs have suffered in many important respects.  The numbers of ALCs and especially ALPs have declined - there were 41 ALPs in 2009/10; in 2019, the latest year for which data are available there were 30 ALPs.  The amount spent per adult learner is less than the amount spent per inmate in provincial and federal penal instituions, and less than the per student amount spent on K-12 componet of our educational system.  This has to change.  This report outlines clear recommendations and 'roadmap' for Adult Education policy going forward.
