Frontier College Awarded with Public Education Advocacy Award

We are honoured to receive the CTF's Public Education Advocacy Award.

“We were just delighted to hear that we won the award and we couldn’t be happier,” says Frontier’s new president and CEO, Stephen Faul. “We’re always thrilled to work with teachers and teacher organizations throughout the country.”

 

Dating back to 1899, Frontier College is Canada’s oldest literacy organization. It has been offering a variety of programs since 1989 to help people of all ages with their literacy skills. The organization also conducts research on literacy and provides online resources for students, parents, and teachers. Throughout the course of a year, Frontier interacts with an estimated 30,000 in the country.

According to the Conference Board of Canada, in 2014, 48 percent of Canadian adults between 16 and 65 have inadequate literacy skills, which the Board considers to be below Level 3 on the five proficiency level scale. “It is those people,” Faul explains, “that Frontier College is trying to reach.”
