Welcome to the
Western Canada Learning Network

The Western Canada Learning Network (WCLN) is a consortium of 51 BC school districts, the Yukon, and 3 Alberta divisions (so far) who work together to:

  • Support Distance Learning programs.
  • Support classroom teachers who are interested in Blended Learning. 
  • Encourage 21st Century Learning and best practices in education.
  • Support teacher collaboration and professional development.

Working together allows us to develop better online resources, create teacher communities, and establish cost-saving partnerships with industry. It all adds up to better virtual experiences and opportunities for our students in both Distance Learning and Blended Learning programs.
