Environmental Scan: Literacy Work in Canada. Summary Report
Movement for Canadian Literacy
During the fall of 2007, Movement for Canadian Literacy (MCL) conducted an environmental scan of the Anglophone literacy field in Canada. Data was gathered through the use of key informant interviews (19) and a literature review. A cross-national working group guided the development of the scan. Interviews with key informants for the scan revealed that the "system" of delivery is extremely complex, fragmented and diverse across the country. From interviews with key informants, it is clear that funding is variable depending on the province or territory. Interviews with key informants, along with the results from research conducted by the Ontario Literacy Coalition and Literacy Alberta, indicate some key trends in terms of the demographics of literacy workers. The scan tells that the environment in which people work can range widely from being excellent in terms of working space, resources, and equipment, to being very poor. Key informants also reveals that there is a range of pay rates in most provinces and territories. Appendices include: (1) Key informants; and (2) Interview Questions.
