Literacy and Essential Skills in Ontario (2012)

In June 2009, Essential Skills Ontario, then called the Ontario Literacy Coalition, published a document entitled “Literacy in Ontario.” This document updates the 2009 publication, incorporating the most recent information available on literacy and Essential Skills programming trend data.

The first chapter deals with the nature of literacy and Essential Skills (ES); the five levels of literacy recognized internationally; and the literacy skills of people in Ontario.

Other chapters deal with literacy and ES programming in Ontario; skills trends and issues; and statistics about literacy programming.

The authors note that Ontario’s literacy and ES field has strong infrastructure that provides regional coordination and sector support. In addition, provincial level organizations represent the interests of their constituencies to the public and to governments.
