Report calls on government to fund more community based programs

One in six Manitobans cannot read or write enough to fully participate in society. For our community to flourish, this needs to change.


Literacy Works says it’s seen more and more people referred to its program.

The report released by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives finds the province is making investments to help fight illiteracy but there’s unmet demand for programs that are accessible to those who need them most.

It is calling for the governments to fund community based programs within reasonable walking distance of every low-income community in Winnipeg.
