The NWT Literacy Council is a non-government territorial organization that promotes and supports the development of literacy in all official languages of the NWT.
Marianne Bromley of the NWT Literacy Council talks about the importance of speaking to your child in your language from birth and even before. Children learn language by hearing it. The earlier the better: The infant/toddler years are a good time to lay a solid foundation for a minority language.How Children Learn Language (Video)
National Family Literacy Day is a national awareness initiative, held annually on January 27th. This special day promotes families reading and doing other literacy-related activities together. Take 15 minutes a day to learn with your family!
The NWT Literacy Council encourages communities, schools, families and organizations to celebrate family literacy day in their own unique way. Many communities or schools celebrate the whole week by hosting several family literacy events.
