Canadian Education Association:

What is literacy in the knowledge age? How do children, youth and adults become literate? Discover the research, the policies and the practices that support literacy in Canada.

"Literacy is a serious public policy issue in Canada. The country lacks a national strategy to address the social and economic consequences of low literacy levels. This is particularly important for vulnerable groups. The Canadian Education Association offers its strategy for literacy in this policy brief."
