Community Literacy of Ontario (CLO) is a provincial literacy network of 100 community literacy agencies across Ontario. CLO was founded in 1994 and our office is located in Barrie, Ontario.
We provide many services to Ontario’s community literacy agencies such as: sharing information via ebulletins and newsletters, producing exemplary resources and tools to support literacy agencies, hosting two websites, providing online training and holding an annual training event, and researching the needs and priorities of our members. CLO has grown to be an organization that is respected both provincially and nationally.
CLO has invariably attracted people with vision, dedication and commitment. We are proud of our dynamic board, staff and volunteer team. While CLO may be small, we have always dreamed big, worked hard, and accomplished much. Community Literacy of Ontario has truly become the little organization that could.
Community Literacy of Ontario is a network of over 100 community-based Literacy and Basic Skills agencies located in communities large and small across the province.
