Summary - Consultation Report: Defining Canada's Needs for a Nationally Funded Network of Adult Literacy and Essential Skills Organizations (2012)

In March 2012, the Office of Literacy and Essential Skills (OLES) at Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) began a consultation process aimed at identifying priority areas that the federal government should be supporting through a pan-Canadian network to promote adult Literacy and Essential Skills (LES) in Canada. This document outlines the methodology used for the process, along with key findings that emerged from it.

The consultation process had two streams. The first stream was based on interviews with key representatives from the 22 national and provincial/territorial organizations that receive core funding from OLES, while the second stream involved inviting a mix of stakeholders to take part in one of six web-teleconference sessions.

Among the dominant themes to emerge from participants’ feedback were the need to establish a framework to guide the direction of the network’s work; the need to clarify the structure of a LES network; and the necessity of financial support from the federal government.

Participants also saw connectivity as a key component of a strategic network, emphasizing the need for many opportunities and avenues for members to connect, both in person and online.
