The goal of the LearnAlberta.ca project is to support lifelong learning by providing students, parents, teachers and others in the Kindergarten to Grade 12 (K-12) community with access to learning resources via the LearnAlberta.ca portal. These learning resources will be in the form of multimedia learning objects that directly relate to the Alberta programs of studies and will be made accessible anywhere, anytime via linked databases and portals on the Internet.

This site offers Kindergarten to Grade 12 teachers, students and their parents access to online resources including Electric Library Canada Plus, Electric Library Canada Elementary, SIRS Discoverer, Grolier Online and Canadian Encyclopedia.

This site contains the Alberta Learning programs of study.  Documents will download as "pdf" files.
