National Forum on Literacy and Poverty


26 Avril 2017 - 12h30 - 17h00

Organisé par : 

Collège Frontière

Literacy is a key driver in moving Canadians away from poverty.

Evidence suggests that investment in literacy will benefit the economy by reducing costs in social assistance, healthcare, and justice while increasing productivity and earnings. What are we waiting for?

Join us as we reveal the barriers created by low literacy and explore ways in which individuals and communities can make positive change through the power of literacy.

This conversation will be webcast live to satellite conferences in cities across Canada.  We welcome questions for our panelists via email and Follow us on Twitter @frontiercollege

Registration is free. Space is limited.
