Final Report on Adults with Literacy Challenges and Adult Immigrants and Refugees (2007)

This document grew out of a Health and Learning Knowledge Centre (HLKC) consultation organized by the Canadian Council on Learning (CCL) in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 2005. The meeting saw the establishment of working groups to concentrate on health-related issues for identified priority groups, including adults with low literacy skills and immigrants and refugees.

This report is based on consultations carried out in Vancouver, British Columbia; Regina, Saskatchewan; Toronto, Ontario; Montreal, Quebec; and three communities in Nova Scotia. In Montreal, the focus was solely on immigrants and refugees, while in Nova Scotia, the consultations focused on adults with literacy challenges. In the three other sites, there were separate consultations for each of the two groups.

The authors explain the methodology; report the consultation outcomes; list participants’ recommendations for overcoming barriers and filling gaps; and outline the working group’s suggestions for promoting a knowledge agenda.
