Pathways Adult Learning Foundations

A “learning pathway” is a journey that adult foundational learners take when they enter our doors. Learning pathways are learner-centered, goal oriented, and focused on engaging adult learners by drawing on their strengths. Through a network of collaborative partnerships, safe and welcoming spaces, and the flexibility of our programming and services, learners will be supported along their unique pathways to further learning.

MHC Pathways programs offer one-on-one tutoring, instructor-led and/or online classes to learners in ESL, adult literacy, numeracy, digital skills, and skills for learning in each of the communities we serve.

Our learners are Canadian born, Canadian citizens, permanent residents, temporary foreign workers and First Nations/Metis and Inuit. Learners range in age from 18 years old to 55-plus.

Foundational Adult Learning Portal

The Foundational Adult Learning Portal (FALP) is an access point for online assessments and online learning resources. It is for Albertan adult (18+) learners, practitioners, instructors, tutors and all advocates of learning. The goal of the portal is to break some of the barriers of traditional learning, through offering online learning resources that can be accessed anytime, anywhere. The four core areas of foundational learning that the portal focuses on are:

  • Skills for Learning,
  • Literacy Skills,
  • Numeracy Skills and
  • Digital Skills.


  • Canadian Born,
  • Canadian Citizens,
  • Permanent Residents,
  • Inuit, Metis and First Nations Peoples,
  • Temporary Foreign Workers and
  • Visiting Visas.
