Literacy in Toronto and York Region: 2009-2010 (2008)

This document, prepared by the Metro Toronto Movement for Literacy (MTML), summarizes the 2009-10 literacy services plan for Toronto and the York region of Ontario.

The authors begin by providing an overview of the Literacy and Basic Skills program in Ontario, then go on to provide a localized context for learner demographics and learner profiles.

From there, the authors position literacy services within the wider socioeconomic context of Toronto and York Region respectively. They analyse data on local issues like employment, housing, incomes and immigration in relation to community planning activities.

The authors conclude with an update on a 2006 initiative by Ontario’s Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to encourage shared delivery of academic upgrading programs among colleges, school boards and community organizations.
