Movement for Canadian Literacy
The Movement for Canadian Literacy (MCL) is a national non-profit organization representing literacy coalitions, organizations and individuals from every province and territory. Since 1978 MCL has worked to: (1) inform the federal government and the general public about issues related to adult literacy in Canada; (2) provide a national forum for provincial and territorial literacy organizations to work together to ensure that every Canadian has access to quality literacy education; (3) strengthen the adult student/learner voice in Canada; and (4) support the development of a strong movement of people and organizations involved with adult literacy education. This document is a summary of MCL's input for the Pre-Budget Consultations leading up to the 2002 budget period. (Contains 16 footnotes.)
