Measures taken by the federal government have created new opportunities for the provinces and territories to fund literacy activities. The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) has prepared this information package to help its members advocate for literacy and Essential Skills (ES) programs at the provincial and territorial level.
The package includes an introductory section on putting literacy on the public agenda; specific information on Labour Market Development Agreements (LMDAs) and Labour Market Agreements (LMAs); examples of LMA initiatives; and information about provincial and territorial government support for literacy and Essential Skills.
For each province or territory, the document includes information on adult literacy policy; how literacy programs are provided; available financial support; and whether there is a formal role for labour in literacy programming.
