Enhancing Pathways: The Literacy and Language Continuum (2010)

Final Project Report

This project was initiated to coordinate and align three existing language and literacy systems: Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS), funded by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU); English as a Second Language (ESL) and credit ESL programs, funded by the Government of Ontario; and the federally funded Language Instruction for Newcomer Canadians (LINC) programs.

An advisory committee was formed to guide the project as it was being piloted in two regions of Ontario. In each pilot, participants were asked to develop recommendations as a result of their local collaborative efforts.

Recommendations included establishing a formalized, ongoing cycle of service coordination and planning; making it possible for adults to access more than one system, according to their needs; setting up consistent standards of practice; and providing ongoing practitioner training.
