Facts about Literacy in Alberta & Canada:

  • 42% of Albertans do not have the literacy skills needed to meet the ever increasing demand of todays society.

  • 40% of adult Canadians have low literacy skills.

  • Literacy is an essential skill. Literacy is much more than being able to read and write. It is about using different ways of communicating to help us understand and interact in our world.

  • Let us strive to keep our population and nation literate by reading and taking on the initiative to learn something new each day.
