$1 million to increase literacy outreach

The BC government is providing Decoda Literacy Solutions with a $1 million grant to support the organization’s literacy outreach programs in communities throughout British Columbia.
Education Minister Don McRae made the announcement today at a Decoda conference in Vancouver on literacy and essential skills in the B.C. labour market.
The $1 million in funding brings total grant funding to Decoda to $2.5 million from the Ministry of Education in 2012-13. This includes $500,000 provided in September for the Raise-A-Reader campaign.
The funds will be used to further support 102 community literacy task groups in BC. These community organizations make an important contribution to the development of individual and family literacy skills through the delivery and co-ordination of literacy programs.
