LiteracyWORKS is a non-profit, charitable, literacy organization that provides adults with literacy instruction as an essential life skill.
We celebrated our 40th Anniversary in 2018, making LiteracyWORKS the longest-running literacy program in the province.
LiteracyWORKS offers basic reading, writing and math skills to help learners enhance their self-sufficiency and quality of life. Our classes are taught by certified instructors.

What is Literacy? 

Literacy is the ability to understand and employ written information in daily activities at home, at work and in the community. “Literacy skills are essential to complete even the most basic tasks in a person’s life.”

FACT: One in five Canadians struggles with reading, writing or math, and millions more do not have the essential skills to succeed in today’s economy.

LiteracyWORKS envisions a Winnipeg in which all adults are literate and able to participate fully in our cultural, economic and social worlds.


LiteracyWorks provides people with essential literacy skills such as reading, numeracy and oral communication to enhance individual self-sufficiency and quality of life.
