Family literacy offers a more innovative and proactive approach to literacy development. We open new windows of opportunity so that all Alberta families achieve what they imagine—improved education, jobs, and health.
In 2015 over 13,000 individuals were served by our programs, services, and training!
”The world has changed since 1966 – but our determination to provide every woman and man with the skills, capacities and opportunities to become everything they wish, in dignity and respect, remains as firm as ever. Literacy is a foundation to build a more sustainable future for all.”
Register by September 2 to participate in the early bird draw.
This Symposium is an opportunity for all of us committed to literacy and foundational learning to come together and share ideas, discuss issues of importance, and to gain new tools. It is also an opportunity to network, socialize and interact with colleagues and friends from around the province. There will be a broad variety of sessions with high-level presenters, Resource Fair Reception, and Awards Banquet celebration.
Early interactions with your children, like sharing books, talking, singing, or playing, help lay the foundation for early language and literacy – essential skills for success.
Parents will find specially tailored and curated activities ranging from reading, recipes, rhymes and games specifically designed to build strong reading, writing and literacy skills in their child, and have FUN doing it!

It’s never too early!
Children who begin life in a learning environment are more likely to succeed in school and in life and parents are their first teachers. Our programs provide parents with the tools they need to support their children’s early language and literacy development.
It’s never too late!
We also support adult learners on their literacy journey, building on strengths and meeting the individual needs of the learners.
