Definition of Literacy
Literacy is an individual’s ability to understand his/her world and function within it.
Literacy is defined as “the ability to understand and employ printed information in daily activities at home, at work and in the community – to achieve one’s goals, and to develop one’s knowledge and potential.”
(OECD and Statistics Canada, IALS definition of literacy).
Almost 46% of adults in BC do not have the literacy skills they need to achieve their goals, to function and thrive in the modern economy, and to develop their knowledge and potential.
