Literacy: Why it Matters
Community Literacy of Ontario is a network of 105 community-based Literacy and Basic Skills agencies located in communities large and small across the province.
We are pleased to celebrate International Literacy Day, September 8, 2012, by presenting “Literacy: Why It Matters” which you can download here.
“Literacy: Why It Matters” paints a picture of literacy by:
- Sharing twenty reasons why literacy is a critical issue in Ontario
- Providing an overview of the Literacy and Basic Skills Program and highlighting its importance
We hope that “Literacy: Why It Matters” will be a useful tool for our members, partners, community stakeholders and service deliverers, governments and the general public. Please feel free to use and share this resource in ways that are helpful to you and your community.
