Adult Learning Center (ALC)

The Louis Riel Institute Adult Learning Centre is a Manitoba certified Adult Learning and Literacy Centre. We are funded by the Province of Manitoba’s Adult Learning and Literacy Branch. The ALC is a non-traditional high school for adults. Our centre is learner focused and we strive to create an academic environment that is safe, comfortable and supportive. Our courses are delivered in modules using an On-line Course Delivery Portal and/or through classroom delivery. We integrate technology into all of our courses and have a fully equipped computer lab available to support our learners.


Each student will meet with the Retention and Support Worker to create an individualized learning plan. This ensures that you are working towards your career and/or educational goals. We also have many other student support services onsite.


Not sure what you want to do after you graduate? Every month we have presentations from post-secondary institutions to inform the learners about their programs and what the most in demand jobs are. We also have industry experts come in to give us some up to date information on the labour market.
