Literacy and Policing in Canada: Target Crime With Literacy - Fact Sheets (2009)

More than 23,000 Canadian adults took part in an International Adult Literacy and Skills Survey in 2003. This survey defined literacy as “the ability to use and understand information that is fundamental to daily life at work, at home, and in the community.” Statistics Canada and Human Resources Development Canada have adopted this definition.
This report looks into the statistics and findings regarding literacy levels in Canada and how they tie into community resources, socio-economic status, the criminal justice system and departmental policies, in order to measure the literacy problems in Canada.
