Literacy Now Burnaby was formed in 2007 to promote awareness of the importance of literacy as a foundation for all learning. Literacy Now Burnaby considers literacy to be much more than reading and writing. It includes the ability to communicate, and use technology and be able to participate in society. Literacy is directly linked to everything we need to live life, it is linked to better jobs, better wages and better health.
Working with Burnaby’s Literacy Plan, Literacy Now Burnaby is committed to building and enhancing literacy services, programs and networks in Burnaby.
Key activities are collaboration with community agencies and service providers to increase public awareness and to provide literacy planning and implementation.
