Literacy Skills of Canadian Youth (1997)

This study examines the distribution of literacy skills of Canadian youth. Adults aged 16 to 25 can be described as "in transition" from completing their formal schooling to entering the labour market, so the data can be used to examine the effects of formal schooling on literacy levels. Provincial differences in literacy levels are also examined, as are differences in individuals of varying backgrounds and personal characteristics.

Literacy: Does Language Make a Difference? (1996)

According to the 1994 international Adult Literacy Survey (IALS), literacy skills differ considerably between Canada's two official language groups. People whose mother tongue is English generally have higher scores on literacy tests than those whose mother tongue is French. In fact, the disparities are large: two to three times as many anglophones as francophones scored at the highest skill levels.
