Saskatchewan’s 2018 Council of the Federation Literacy Award Winner Announced

Released on July 18, 2018

Judy Craig of the Regina Public Library is Saskatchewan’s recipient of the 2018 Council of the Federation Literacy Award (COFLA).

“On behalf of Premier Scott Moe and the Government of Saskatchewan, I want to congratulate Judy for this well-deserved honour,” Deputy Premier and Minister of Education Gordon Wyant said.  “Judy’s leadership in developing family literacy in our province has been invaluable.  I look forward to officially presenting this prestigious accolade to Judy during a formal event in the fall.”

Judy is being recognized this year for her leadership at the Regina Public Library over the last 35 years, promoting family literacy, engaging Prekindergarten teachers, families and children, and connecting them with the library and resources to encourage literacy development.

The award is also recognizing her support for literacy development in newcomer families, mentorship for family literacy practitioners and provision of access to information to hundreds of families and community organizations.

“I want to thank the Ministry of Education and Government of Saskatchewan for this honour.  It’s been a great privilege and years of adventure for me working at the Regina Public Library, delivering literacy services to young people, senior citizens and families,” the 2018 COFLA recipient Judy Craig said.  “It’s been a pleasure watching children flourish, families thrive and new Canadians integrate into a new country and culture.”

In 2004-05, Canada’s Premiers’ Council of the Federation created an annual award to recognize outstanding achievement, innovative practice, and excellence in literacy in each of Canada’s provinces and territories.  Saskatchewan recognizes literacy champions by focusing on a different category every two years, rotating the award with literacy learners, literacy volunteers and literacy leaders.

In 2018, Saskatchewan’s COFLA award is recognizing an outstanding family literacy leader.  For more information on the award, including a complete list of previous recipients in Saskatchewan, please visit  For more information about the Council of the Federation, visit
