Brief to Senate Standing Committee On Social Affairs, Science and Technology (2007)

Re: Hearings on Literacy

In February 2007, members of NALD were invited by the Senate Standing Committee on Social Affairs, Science and Technology to participate in the ongoing national discussion on literacy and its impact on education and employment skills in Canada.

Outlined in this brief, The National Adult Literacy Database Inc. recommends that the Senate strongly urge Cabinet to:
1. Recognize that literacy is not simply a children's education issue;
2. Renew its commitment to provide leadership and work with partners to develop and implement a coherent pan-Canadian literacy strategy;
3. Repair the broken partnerships with the provinces and territories that are so vital to build capacity and coherence in a truly pan-Canadian strategy.
