The author was asked to "research and report in writing on existing programs and delivery mechanisms for adult literacy that might be seen as 'exemplary' by adult literacy practitioners in British Columbia." This report provides descriptive case-studies of thirteen innovative adult literacy programs in Canada, many of which have been in existence for nearly ten years or more and thus have a track record. Some of the thirteen are younger, but were chosen because of some innovative practices or project(s) in which they are engaged. After these descriptions there are five shorter descriptions of programs or parts of programs which are particularly innovative or serve to illustrate a particular point. Finally, there is a list of some innovative practices among Native groups in Ontario.
