Literacy Day in Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan celebrates International Literacy Day every year with events around the province. The Government of Saskatchewan also proclaimed Literacy Day in Saskatchewan. You can download a copy of the proclamation here to use in your own events.

2022 International Literacy Day / Journée internationale de l’alphabétisation

This year’s theme, designated by UNESCO, celebrates ‘Transforming Literacy Learning Spaces’ / ‘Transformer les espaces d’apprentissage d’alphabétisation’. This theme is an “opportunity to rethink the fundamental importance of literacy learning spaces to build resilience and ensure quality, equitable, and inclusive education for all.” Moving forward together for literacy includes digital learning spaces. For information, posters, and more in multiple languages, visit UNESCO’s website for International Literacy Day or Journée internationale de l’alphabétisation

Look for events in your area, and join in the UNESCO two-day hybrid international event (find out more, or register).

Literacy and accessible digital literacy are very important; they allow us to participate fully in our society. We work with organizations around the province, and across the country to ensure that Saskatchewan residents have access to literacy programs and resources.

With support from partners, we have developed a tip sheet on Screen Time with ideas and information for how to make the most of screen time with young children. You can download the Screen Time tip sheet on our family literacy resources page. If you would like support, or want to help us translate this tip sheet, please contact our office.
