Abstract

Innovating for literacy and skills: A Canadian partnership

Canada has a strong tradition in adult literacy and basic skills. Twenty-two national and provincial organizations have roles across the community such as coordinating the actions of local services, sharing knowledge and expertise, developing new models and approaches for literacy and skills development, and providing information and documentation. Each national organization developed from different origins and, over the years, developed expertise in specific areas. Two of the national organizations, both libraries, have a long tradition of working in partnership, with each other and with other major actors. This paper presents their work, especially their work together within a recent partnership initiative.
