The Future of Literacy in Canada's Largest Cities (2010)

In this report, the Canadian Council on Learning (CCL) has, for the first time, been able to offer literacy projections for Canada’s four largest cities: Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Ottawa. Prior to this, the CCL’s free online program Projections of Adult Literacy – Measurement Movement (PALMM) was capable of offering projection only on a national, provincial and territorial basis.

The authors of this report offer a picture of literacy in the four cities in 2031, providing figures for both the percentage of adults with low literacy skills and the total population of adults with low literacy skills. They also point out factors driving the changes in each city, including rising numbers of immigrants and an aging population.
