This case study looks at the program in place at the North West Company, the leading retailer of food and everyday products and services to remote communities across northern Canada and Alaska, and the largest private sector employer of Aboriginal people in Canada. The company’s multi-faceted approach to literacy and training focuses on communication, computer literacy, and numeracy, reading and writing skills. This program was selected for an award because of the improvements it brought, not only to employees, but to the communities in which they live and work.
