Why Literacy?

Improving literacy improves people’s lives—research shows that people in Canada with higher levels of literacy, numeracy, and problem-solving skills report better health and stronger connections with their communities and society. Literacy upgrading also has a positive impact on higher earnings and job retention.

Volunteers change lives

Each year, our volunteers give thousands of hours to tutoring math, reading, and writing; reading stories; helping with special events; and supporting our book donation program.

From helping children read a favourite book to supporting adults as they work to improve their skills, volunteers are key to creating a culture of literacy in Canada.
