Illiteracy and Human Rights (1990)

This document is available in French.

The guiding principles of Canadian democracy are written in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. These guiding principles recognize the equality of every individual and oppose all forms of discrimination. Thus, everyone is equal before the law. Also, everyone has the right to a decent quality of life and has access to all means instituted by the State to meet the basic needs and rights of the individual.

This document deals with the question of human rights. The authors attempt to view the limitations and obstacles encountered by persons lacking basic literacy skills in the exercise of these rights. Various means to be considered for removing these obstacles are suggested.
