National Forum

Register today for Frontier College's National Forum on Literacy and the Economy: The Road to Recovery.

Join us on Wednesday, October 6, 2021 at 1:00 pm Eastern Time to hear from our panelists. We will bring together a wide variety of participants to discuss the economic impact of COVID-19 on Canadians and how literacy is vital to our country’s recovery. 

After more than a year of intermittent lockdowns and disruptions to school, training, and work, many Canadians do not have a job to return to and need to pursue new career paths.

Experts say the adult literacy gap—poor reading, writing, and numeracy skills— will be a major roadblock to post-pandemic economic recovery.
