The Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL) is the Columbia Basin and Boundary's
not-for-profit literacy organization, working in 77 communities across south-east British Columbia.
Our 16 Community Literacy Coordinators work with local planning committees to provide
effective literacy programs and services for people of all ages in the communities we serve.
News and Updates
COVID-19 Update March 16, 2020
As of March 16, CBAL is cancelling all programming. Even though our face-to-face programs are on hold, we are busy preparing for new online ones. We are excited about launching a series of online programs for families, adults and English language learners – it’s one way we can help to make “social distancing” a little less lonely! We will keep you posted.
CBAL staff are still working and available to answer your questions, so feel free to contact us by phone, text, email or Facebook. Please click on the "Community Programs" tab above to find the contact information for the community literacy coordinator or settlement worker in your area.
