Literacy in Ontario: Implications of Findings from IALSS 2003 (2006)

A PowerPoint Presentation

In 2003, the International Adult Literacy and Life Skills Survey (IALSS) for the first time measured literacy proficiency among all provinces and territories in Canada. This PowerPoint presentation offers an analysis of the survey’s implication for Ontario specifically.

The author looks at the level of literacy proficiency in Ontario; how Ontario compares with other provinces, territories, and Canada as a whole; the distribution of literacy proficiency among the province’s working-age population; the impact of age and education on literacy; the performance of Ontario’s Francophone minority; and the demographic characteristics of people with low literacy proficiency, including where they are located in Ontario.

Many of the slides present information in graphs and charts, with accompanying notes providing further analysis and explanation.
