Literacy is related in multiple ways to healthy development. Consequently, it has become a serious concern for Health Canada. The effects of literacy on health are both direct and indirect; whether the health issue is the safe administration of medications and infant formulas or the ability to secure food and housing, literacy is involved.
A great deal of literacy education and support is ongoing in Health Canada's Community Action Program for Children (CAPC) and the Canada Prenatal Nutrition Program (CPNP) projects. This resource communicates how CAPC and CPNP projects make connections between language, literacy and healthy development and provides relevant support to CAPC and CPNP managers and staff.
