A guest editorial, "Lifelong Learning For All: A National, Social, Corporate, and Personal Imperative for the Knowledge-Based 21st Century" (Ron Faris), considers how several nations have adopted the lifelong learning concept as a means of meeting massive economic and social challenges; focuses on the foundational issues of prenatal and preschool provision and places them within the wider context of lifelong learning; and calls for British Columbia (BC) to continue to lead the way toward a "learning Canada.""The Great Challenge for BC: Lifelong Learning for All" (Kjell Rubenson) examines, from an international perspective, some major lifelong learning issues believed to be those that BC needs to address. "Family Learning: Some Reflections" (Carol Matusicky) focuses on the state of families and their crucial importance as the first and most vital workshop for learning. "A New Architecture for Lifelong Learning" (Carol Matthews) emphasizes the seamless nature of learning and the need to adopt more holistic perspectives as learning opportunities are organized and delivered.
