Who We Are
The Saskatchewan Literacy Network promotes and supports literacy in Saskatchewan.
Literacy and Learning for Life.
The fundamental beliefs defining the work the Saskatchewan Literacy Network does:
- We believe that literacy is a basic human right.
- We believe that literacy training is a social responsibility.
- We believe literacy is lifelong learning.
- We believe that learners must be central to all literacy programming and policy development.
- We believe in clear and open communication.
- We believe in respect for different needs and cultures.
- We believe in quality literacy information and programming.
After the establishment of the National Literacy Secretariat and the Saskatchewan Literacy Campaign in 1988, a number of new literacy initiatives began in Saskatchewan. Practitioners in these projects and other existing literacy programs identified a need for improved communication and coordination. The Saskatchewan Literacy Network was the first Saskatchewan organization to bring together all agencies and individuals involved in adult literacy. It was one of the first provincial coalitions in Canada. The Saskatchewan Literacy Network office opened on November 1, 1989.
