Community Literacy

The Terrace Community Literacy Outreach Coordinator (LOC) is funded by Decoda Literacy Solutions for five hours per week.

The LOC:

Organizes Terrace Literacy Task Group meetings throughout the year
Communicates literacy updates to Task Group members
Coordinates local literacy initiatives involving multiple stakeholders

Why Literacy Matters:

Below you can read about the research that covers 11 literacy myths here in Canada and recommendations on what should be done to help Canadian literacy increase.

 

 

Poverty:

Literacy skill level and household income are positively related. At $84,600, the median household income for individuals with the highest literacy proficiency (level 4 and level 5) was 70% higher than it was for those with lowest literacy proficiency (level 1 and below), and 33% higher than for those in the level 2 proficiency category.
