Literacy is something that affects all of us. Whether it’s a senior trying to understand new technology, an adult upgrading their skills to find a better job, or a child trying to read their first story, literacy is everywhere.

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).
