17% of Canadians between the ages of 16 – 65 struggle with low levels of literacy1

Literacy is a fundamental skill that all people need for employment, safety, health, confidence, and community connection. Improving literacy does not simply mean enhancing basic reading skills. It’s a way to fully participate in society, improve your socioeconomic status, and enrich your community.

Developing literacy programs

There are thousands of people who are filled with potential but are hindered by their inability to read and write. Thankfully, charities across Canada are creating programs that are increasing literacy rates. This includes libraries, literacy programs supporting adults, children, and newcomers, and writing programs.

With your support, we can help unlock the potential of many.
