Family Literacy Day (FLD) is a national initiative that promotes the importance of reading and learning together as a family. In recognition of Family Literacy Day, the Centre hosts the annual Leading with Literacy Breakfast where business, government and community leaders come together to celebrate family literacy as an innovative approach to improving literacy in our community.
Each year an individual is selected as the keynote speaker to present their unique perspective on the importance of literacy.

"I very much enjoyed the presentations. The Centre is doing excellent work – and it is very inspiring for me being a young father with two little girls and trying to help their literacy skills along as best I can."
