Manitoba Adult Literacy Strategy

The Government of Manitoba is concerned about addressing the literacy challenge in our province. In order to stimulate renewed action, it has identified a Minister responsible for literacy and has passed The Adult Literacy Act, effective January 1, 2009.

The Adult Literacy Act requires the development of a provincial adult literacy strategy to address the needs of Manitobans.

Adult Literacy in Manitoba: A Discussion Paper (April 2008) (PDF) provided the starting point for consultation on the development of the adult literacy strategy.

The report on the consultations, What We Heard (November 2008) (PDF), presents a summary of participants' views, ideas and opinions and contains implicit recommendations for the Manitoba Adult Literacy Program and the development of the adult literacy strategy.
