Family Literacy Day

Family Literacy Day, held on January 27 each year, was developed by ABC Canada Literacy Foundation and Honda Canada in 1999 to encourage families to read and learn together on a daily basis.  In our information driven world, the ability to read and write effectively has never been more important and the social handicap that illiteracy represents has never been more apparent.

Literacy proficiency improves chances of employment, builds self confidence and enables discussions and actions that affect the welfare of individuals and their community.

Family Literacy Day can be celebrated by simply setting aside 15 minutes of family time to read and learn together - playing board games like Scrabble, writing a letter or simply by following a recipe together.
