Members of the Board of Directors

The Portage Learning and Literacy Centre is a not-for-profit organization providing individuals of the Central Plains region with opportunities to realize their literacy, educational, employment, and life goals through a positive and supportive environment. The affairs of the PLLC are governed by a Board of Directors.

Board members play a key role in setting the direction and priorities of the Centre—this is a great way to make a substantial contribution to the organization and the community.

The Board of Directors is the acknowledged final authority of PLLC.  Its objectives are as follows:  (1) To ensure that services provided are within the Objects of PLLC, Inc.;  (2) To ensure that the highest possible standards of service are offered and available to the community at reasonable cost; (3) To ensure the financial health of PLLC, Inc.

All interested individuals should apply to be a member of the Board of Directors by filling out our online volunteer application form found below.  If you prefer a paper copy or if you have any questions, please stop by our office at 110 Saskatchewan Ave. West, Portage la Prairie, or email [email protected]
