Family literacy offers a more innovative and proactive approach to literacy development. We open new windows of opportunity so that all Alberta families achieve what they imagine—improved education, jobs, and health.
In 2019 over 8,000 individuals were served by our programs, services, and training!

Ruth Hayden Memorial Family Literacy Practitioner Award
The Centre for Family Literacy is seeking nominations for this award, in memory of Dr. Ruth Hayden, which recognizes the accomplishments of individual practitioners in the family literacy field. Deadline for nominations is September 10.
Children who begin life in a learning environment are more likely to succeed in school and in life and parents are their first teachers. Our programs provide parents with the tools they need to support their children’s early language and literacy development.
It’s never too late!
We also support adult learners on their literacy journey, building on strengths and meeting the individual needs of the learners.
