“Literacy isn’t something that we can just leave to schools to teach and universities to study. It has to be a community- wide investment in our social, cultural and economic health.” – Paula Simons, Edmonton Journal 2017

The CR Literacy Association has five programs: the Adult Literacy Program, Youth ESL, Outreach Computer Literacy Program, Aboriginal Family Literacy, Fostering Literacy and Family Literacy. To date in the 2018-2019 school year our association helped approximately 150 learners with the assistance of 80 volunteer tutors. We rely tremendously on our community volunteers to assist learners with meeting their literacy goals.

CR Literacy tailors its programming to focus on the goals and needs of each learner.  This learner-centered approach is supported by volunteer tutors and is provided at no cost to the learner.  If you or someone you know might be interested in getting help with reading, writing, math or pronunciation, please call 250 923 1275 or email info@literacyforall.ca

We are always in need of volunteers and new board members, if you are interested in either please contact us for more information.

“It is important to recognize that knowing how to read and write impacts our everyday life. Nearly half of all Canadians struggle with some part of Literacy. When some of our learners come to us, they are not able to read such things as bus schedules, street signs or many other things that we take for granted.” – Sherry Bujold, Adult Literacy Program Coordinator.

The CR Literacy Association has five programs: the Adult Literacy Program, Youth ESL, Outreach Literacy Program, Aboriginal Family Literacy, and Family Literacy. To date in the 2016-2017 school year our association helped approximately 198 learners with the assistance of 87 volunteer tutors. We rely tremendously on our community volunteers to assist with learners meeting their literacy goals.
