Specialized Programs

The Portage Learning and Literacy Centre offers settlement services and language training for newcomers to Canada through Newcomer Settlement Services. We also offer Employment Assistance Services for all residents of Portage la Prairie and surrounding areas, and a 13-week work experience program for youth (15 to 30 years of age). Throughout the year, we offer short-term training programs such as Manage Your Money workshops, and Power Up, which is a basic computer course for women.
