The Marginally Literate Workforce (1996)

This article briefly profiles the significant minority of Canadian workers who possess only Level 1 or 2 literacy skills, as determined by the International Adult Literacy Survey (IALS). Since useful questions may be raised by studying the literacy skills of foreign workforces, this article also looks at workers in the United States, our largest trading partner and primary competitor, and Germany, the principal economic power in Europe.
