Workplace Literacy Issues in Canada (1998)

This is the presentation made by Dr. Harvey Krahn, Professor of Sociology at the University of Alberta, as part of the “Breakfast on the Hill” series.

The presentation addresses four basic questions:
1. How literate is the Canadian workforce, compared to that of other countries?
2. How much "fit" or "mismatch" do we observe between the literacy skills of workers and the literacy requirements of their jobs?
3. If literacy skills are under-utilized, might they weaken or be lost?
4. What can be done to address these workplace literacy issues?
