National Adult Literacy Database Inc. – 1989-2009 (2009)

An anniversary booklet

The National Adult Literacy Database (NALD) celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2009. This anniversary booklet, which features highlights of its 20-year history, was produced by NALD staff as a commemorative keepsake as the year came to a close.

What started in 1989 as a literacy project of the Association of Canadian Community Colleges at Fanshawe College has evolved over time to become Canada’s literacy and essential skills network. NALD’s services support the building of more literate families, increased participation in workplace education programs and a strengthened Canadian culture.

NALD is grateful to Fanshawe College for providing information for the foreword of the booklet. Information for the NALD 1989-2009 timeline was taken from NALD office reports.
