Welcome to Community Literacy of Ontario
“I read everyday now just for the enjoyment of it.” (An adult literacy student in Ontario)
"I became a literacy volunteer because I wanted to give to others the gift that had been given to me - the lifelong pleasure of reading." (An Ontario literacy volunteer)
"We know this thing we call literacy is as vital as the air we breathe and the food we eat. How do we know this? We know because in our successes we have saved lives, we have put people to work, we have removed shame and embarrassment and we have replaced them with pride. Look at our learners' smiles!" (A literacy practitioner in Ontario)
"The Centre has helped me to read and write...until now, I never thought I could". (An adult literacy student in Ontario)
"I needed something worthwhile to do - and what better than helping someone to learn." (An Ontario literacy volunteer)
"I feel truly honoured to be involved in a program and sector that demonstrates such passion, dedication and energy on a daily basis! Even after all these years, I'm still learning. It just goes to show that LIFELONG learning applies to every one of us" (A literacy practitioner in Ontario)
