This report presents the findings of a research study on family literacy in Ontario. Using focus groups and a province-wide survey of more than 100 family literacy practitioners, this study takes a snapshot of family literacy activity in Ontario. The study is designed to identify issues and gaps in the current family literacy infrastructure and to identify effective and sustainable options for family literacy delivery. Researchers looked at the types of family literacy programs currently in existence in Ontario, the level and nature of funding for these programs, organizational partnerships, the training and professional development needs of family literacy practitioners, and whether there is support for accreditation in the family literacy field.
