This report examines the status of workforce literacy programs in Canadian municipalities. A decade ago there were approximately eight municipalities that supported a policy/program on literacy for their employees. In the year 2000, approximately thirty municipal governments have either completed a program, currently have a program in place, or are considering implementing a literacy program in the immediate future. For the purposes of this report, data has been gathered on a range of programs including those that operated in the late 1980's as well as current programs.
