Workshops on Literacy, Economy and Society (1996)

On September 3rd and 4th, 1996, WWESTNET hosted the first of two workshops in Calgary, which addressed the International Adult Literacy Survey (IALS) and its Canadian component. The purpose of the bottom line on basics: A Workshop on Literacy, Economy and Society was twofold. The first goal was to bring together western and northern Canadian literacy and language umbrella groups to identify and examine relevant issues raised by the studies. The second was to facilitate the development of action frameworks targeting concerns raised.

Representatives from business, labour, government and education gathered to consider the results of the IALS report.
