Literacy Foundation

A leader in Quebec, the Literacy Foundation (FPA) draws its expertise from an analysis of illiteracy issues and the solutions for eliminating  illiteracy. To that end, the Foundation believes it is imperative to raise awareness of the importance of lifelong literacy and contribute to improving the quality of life of individuals who are illiterate or poor readers.

Since its inception in 1989, the Literacy Foundation has innovated by creating many projects that have made it known in Quebec, elsewhere in Canada, and on the international scene. From 1996 onward, it implemented sound strategic planning. The credibility of the social action proposed by the Foundation lies in the strength of its convictions and its profound belief in the need to generate change in society so as to enhance the quality of life of illiterate individuals, and thereby of the community at large.
