For the past thirty years, ABC Life Literacy Canada has worked with Canada’s top businesses to create strategic and integrated partnerships. Through strong relationships with corporate Canada, government, media as well as literacy and learning partners across the country, we are raising awareness and providing free educational programs and resources to help adult learners and their families improve their skills.
While we have had many successes, there is still much to be done. A startling 48 per cent of adult Canadians have low literacy skills that fall below high school equivalency and affect their ability to function at work and in their personal lives. 17 per cent function at the lowest level, where individuals may, for example, be unable to read the dosage instructions on a medicine bottle. (OECD Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies, 2013).
