Making a Difference

At North Channel Literacy Council, we pride ourselves on creating a unique, exciting environment that embraces all types of learners and promotes growth.  Learners are welcomed into a dynamic and supportive community.


At North Channel Literacy Council, we understand that each of our learners has individual wants and needs. We believe that learning can only be fostered from a feeling of mutual respect and compassion, and we maintain those values in everything we do. Our unique approach provides students with the proper support system that will help lead them to a successful path.
