Life Literacy

Life literacy signals the importance of lifelong and life-wide literacy and learning. It’s the literacy skills you need to live your life and the new skills you need to acquire throughout your life. Workplace, family and community are important areas in your life where developing your reading, writing and math skills can result in a more productive and more successful life experience.


September is Life Literacy Month! ABC Life Literacy Canada encourages all Canadians to try something new this month, whether it be going back to school, upgrading your skills or learning a new activity.
