About WCLN

The Western Canadian Learning Network (WCLN) is a consortium of BC school districts, Alberta school divisions, Saskatchewan school divisions, the Yukon, and NWT who work together to:

  • Support distance learning, alternate, and blended learning programs.
  • Support classroom teachers who are interested in sharing ideas and personalizing their classrooms. 
  • Encourage 21st Century Learning and best practices in education.
  • Support teacher collaboration and professional development.

WCLN is a non-profit society that puts ALL contributions directly back into resource 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 learning experiences and opportunities for our students.

Also, teachers now collaborate, expanding their opportunities and potential. Another network benefit is the ability to represent 40+ districts to vendors, allowing WCLN members some great cost-cutting partnership deals.
