This is a free, goal-directed, flexible and supportive upgrading program. It accommodates the realities of daily life, while allowing participants to bring their reading, writing, math and other essential skills up to a high-school level. The Acadmic and Career Entrance (ACE) certificate is recognized as equivalent to a Grade 12 diploma by all Ontario Colleges, and by many employers. All the services are free (funded by Employment Ontario)
