International Literacy Day statement

A group of organizations and individuals committed to promoting literacy for all has prepared material for the upcoming federal election. We are releasing these in advance of September 8th, International Literacy Day.

Attached is the ILD statement “Choose Success” which includes a list of signatories and a backgrounder “The State of Literacy in Canada.” These documents are available for you to distribute and/or use in your newsletters or communications channels. I have the documents in French if you need them.

The group will also be preparing a set of question to put to the federal political parties in advance of the 2019 federal election. We will share these so you may, if you wish, use them with your local candidates.

Please use the hashtag #literacy4all or #alphabétisationpourtous.
