Evaluation of the Canadian Union of Public Employees Literacy Program (2006)

Summary Report

The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) literacy program has been funded since 2000 through a grant from the National Literacy Secretariat (NLS). At the end of five years, the NLS offers the option of an external evaluation, directed by the recipient organization and funded by the NLS. CUPE decided to take advantage of this opportunity. The union saw the evaluation as an opportunity to reflect on past work and to identify key priority areas for the future.

For this evaluation, the Literacy Reference Group and a CUPE evaluation committee developed a set of questions for the evaluator to address. Data was collected from more than 600 CUPE members and staff through focus groups, interviews, a document review, surveys and four case studies of local literacy and clear language projects. This report has been divided into four main parts:

- Introduction and background
- Evaluation findings
- Future directions
- Case studies
