Living Literacy: A Literacy Framework for Alberta's Next Generation Economy (2009)

This document sets out a framework for coordinating the efforts of the Government of Alberta and its partners to improve literacy levels to ensure Albertans can keep pace with a changing economy. It is the result of research and consultation with adult literacy learners; parents; teachers and educational administrators at all levels; community organizations; libraries; employers and industry associations; and Alberta government ministries.
The authors set out four objectives for achieving the province’s vision: increase the number of Albertans who have at least level 3 literacy skills according to the International Survey of Adult Literacy; increase Albertans’ awareness of the lifelong importance of literacy; enhance opportunities by developing inclusive, accessible programs for quality learning; and facilitate collaborative partnerships that support a continuum of literacy development for Albertans of all ages.
The report also highlights the priority actions for 2009-2013 to meet each of those objectives.
