Literacy Advocacy

Hey everyone,

Couple advocacy links and tidbits.

At training on Saturday Lyndsay mentioned the literacy petition that the Movement for Canadian Literacy (MCL) started last year. For those of you interested in more information, or who are motivated to pass it around your classes/amongst your friends to get signatures you can get a copy HERE. Frontier College also recently issued a press release on it which is available HERE.

She also mentioned Literacy Action Day, where Literacy Organizations and learners from across Canada come to Parliament Hill to talk to Ministers, MPs and Senators about the importance of literacy. Some quick searching online seems to inform me that it is being held on October 27th this year. For those interested in more information, you can check that out HERE.

Finally, for those of you keen on keeping up with what the federal government is doing about literacy, Human Resources and Skills Development Canada has a "What's New in Literacy Page" which you can check out HERE.

Bye for now,
