Lifelong Learning:

It’s Essential


Our Program Areas


Aboriginal Languages

Aboriginal languages and culture give people their identity.  We actively promote literacy in all of the NWT’s nine official Aboriginal languages, as well as English and French.)

Family Literacy

Family members are a child’s first teachers.  Playing, singing, reading and talking with children during their early years builds a solid foundation for strong language skills and learning success.

Adult Literacy and Essential Skills

Today’s changing world means that as adults we must continuously use and grow our skills at home, in the community and at work.

Youth Literacy

Youth represent the future of the NWT. They’re the next leaders, parents, employers and employees. Finding ways to keep youth engaged in learning is an important part of our work.

Plain Language

Plain language design, writing and editing can get your message across clearly to everyone, whatever their literacy skills.  We do this work on a fee-for-service basis.
