This report presents results of a study to identify existing literacy programs and resource centers in Alberta and profile the individuals who hold a stake in Alberta's literacy programming efforts. It begins with highlights of project results related to programs, program administrators, instructors/tutors, and learners (all groups) and a summary of similarities related to programs, learners, and literacy practitioners. A 34-item bibliography is provided. The body of the report begins with an introduction to the study, including its context. Section 2 details research methodology.
