Nominations For Saskatchewan’s 2020 Council Of The Federation Literacy Award Are Now Open

Released on March 13, 2020

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2020 Canada’s Premiers’ Council of the Federation Literacy Award.

Saskatchewan recognizes literacy champions by focusing on a different category every two years, rotating the award with literacy learners, literacy volunteers and literacy leaders.  This year, Saskatchewan will honour a family literacy volunteer.

“The dedication of our literacy volunteers gives Saskatchewan families a strong start to a bright future,” Deputy Premier and Education Minister Gordon Wyant said.  “The Council of the Federation Literacy Award recognizes the important work that volunteers do to support increasing literacy levels.”

Family literacy volunteers provide an important service to Saskatchewan families by growing engagement and improving families’ capacity to support their children’s learning.  Nominees for the 2020 Council of the Federation Literacy Award promote family literacy awareness, contribute to providing programming, advance collaborative partnerships in communities and educate on the benefits of family literacy.

This year’s award will go to a volunteer who has made a significant contribution to family literacy in Saskatchewan.  Unpaid literacy volunteers living in Saskatchewan who are currently, or since January 1, 2019, have contributed significant knowledge, time and/or expertise to assist family literacy learners, family literacy organizations or communities are eligible to be nominated.

Nominations will be reviewed by a panel, and the award recipient will be honoured at a presentation ceremony at the Saskatchewan Legislature later this year.  The Council of the Federation Literacy Award is an annual award that recognizes the valuable contributions made by Canadians across the entire field of literacy.  This includes family, Aboriginal, health, workplace and community literacy.

The Council of the Federation is made up of all provincial and territorial premiers.  It enables premiers to work collaboratively on key initiatives that are important to all Canadians.  This year’s nomination deadline is June 12, 2020.
