Vancouver, BC - The Vancouver School Board’s more than a century old continuing education program will carry on this fall with marketing and registration through Langara College’s continuing studies.

The VSB cut the program that had been losing money for at least a decade from its 2014-2015 budget, for a savings of $514,410.

“Aside from the fact that we thought that this is a really wonderful program that shouldn’t just disappear, this has been part of the fabric of the city for a long time,” said Daniel Thorpe, dean of continuing studies at Langara College. “We thought there was a natural link there and that it would be a real shame to see that disappear from the city of  Vancouver.”
