We have redesigned our website to make it more user friendly. On the front page you will find three large boxes with pictures: What's New, E-News and About the NWT Literacy Council. In the right hand column you will find our menu. We have also added a research section and a literacy facts section. And we redesigned our resources section to make it more user friendly.

Tools for Community Building

In 2001 the NWT and Nunavut Literacy Councils developed a program planning and proposal writing guide called Tools for Community Building.

We have updated this guide to include a section called Starting Your Project. Also the program planning and proposal writing section has been updated. You can find a copy of this guide on our co-hosted site with the Nunavut Literacy Council at

We will have the hard copy completed in January. Please contact us if you would like a copy.
