Literacy in Saskatchewan

Literacy in Saskatchewan

Literacy is the set of knowledge, skills, practices and behaviours that allow all of us to interact with each other. Literacy and learning are keys to employment, higher wages, better social and health outcomes, and active participation in society. There are a number of literacy programs available to Saskatchewan citizens that encourage a highly educated province and skilled workforce.

Family Literacy

Family literacy is all the ways that families interact, share and learn together.

Family literacy programs give opportunities to learn about:

  • the importance of language, literacy and reading;
  • the role that family members can play in literacy development of their children;
  • interactive literacy activities that support a child's literacy development at home and in school; and
  • how to access learning resources through the library or their community.

Family Literacy Hubs work with schools, libraries and communities to provide family literacy programs, services and supports for families. These organizations are funded to act as Family Literacy Hubs within Saskatchewan:
