Final Report on Adults with Literacy Challenges and Adult Immigrants and Refugees: Summary (2007)

This document grew out of a Health and Learning Knowledge Centre (HLKC) consultation organized by the Canadian Council on Learning (CCL) in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 2005. The meeting saw the establishment of working groups to concentrate on health-related issues for identified priority groups, including adults with low literacy skills and immigrants and refugees.

This report summarizes the information gained from consultations with the two target groups in communities in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia.

The authors provide an overview of the consultation process; describe the limitations of the process; and outline recommendations for overcoming barriers to learning and health.
