This is a report of the latest study in Human Resources Development Canada's (HRDC) “Lessons Learned” series.

It is based on a review of studies and reports that set out the problems associated with low-level literacy skills among adults and what has been done to address those problems. The study focuses primarily on interventions that have been formally evaluated with a view to including as many different types of interventions as possible.

This paper has been organized into the following sections:
- Introduction
- Problems associated with adult literacy
