So all can learn

Over 40 years ago, the doors of CanLearn Society opened to provide services for students with learning disabilities. A lot has happened since then. Now each year, over two thousand children, youth and adults with learning, attention, literacy and social-emotional challenges access our programs and services - many report feeling hopeful about the future for the first time.

Over one-in-five Calgarians struggle with learning, literacy and attention issues. So, for every individual that we reach, many still need our help. Every day, children struggle in school, parents feel powerless to help, adults falter at work and fear losing their jobs.

With your support, we can help individuals and families overcome these challenges and move on to a life of confidence and purpose.

Donate to CanLearn today to unlock potential so all can learn.

Our Mission

The CanLearn Society creates, uses and shares knowledge to remove learning barriers and support life long learning.

Our Beliefs

We believe that learning changes lives.

We believe that CanLearn Society helps children, youth and adults learn, brings hope and improves their quality of life.

We believe that individuals with learning, literacy and attention difficulties can achieve their full potential and become contributing members to society in a supportive and collaborative community.

What People Are Saying

" I have referred many families to the CanLearn Society. We felt that the psychologist had an incredible amount of care for the family, was thorough and provided countless useful resources. Having the assessment causes me to investigate and understand behaviour instead of getting frustrated. "
