This document offers a summary of ABC Life Literacy Canada’s submission to the Digital Economy Strategy Consultation, unveiled by the Government of Canada in 2010.

The authors point out that many Canadians need help in improving their basic literacy and Essential Skills before they can participate fully in a digital economy. They urge the government to build its digital skills strategy upon the strength and capacity of existing community-based literacy agencies and to fund their programs adequately.

They also urge the government to renew and strengthen the federal-provincial Labour Market Agreements and Labour Market Development Agreements (LMAs and LMDAs) to reflect the priorities of the digital economy skills transformation.

The authors also call upon the federal government to ensure that clear language is a central element of communications regarding the digital economy strategy.

ABC Life Literacy Canada is a non-profit organization that mobilizes business, government and communities to support lifelong learning.
