Information Series #2: Literacy in the Northwest Territories (2006)

Results from IALSS

The International Adult Literacy and Skills Survey (IALSS) provides a summary of how well adults understand and use printed information at home, at work and in the community. In 2003, the IALSS for the first time measured literacy proficiency among all provinces and territories in Canada.

In this pamphlet, the authors identify youth, unemployed people, and Aboriginal people as the three groups that face the greatest literacy challenges in the Northwest Territories. They urge government to target programs and services towards those who need them most, and to get members of the target groups involved in the search for solutions.
