Ways to Give
Every donation made to Frontier College helps to raise literacy levels in Canada, from cities to fly-in communities. People often think of reading as something you can or can’t do. It’s not that simple. In 2012, 27,000 Canadians participated in the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC), which looks at all the factors that make someone literate, including the ability to understand, interpret, create, communicate, and compute. The study found that approximately 13% of participants are at Level 1, meaning they can understand basic vocabulary, but are unable to compare and contrast two or more pieces of information. While many participants are in the highest levels, we want all Canadians to experience the confidence and access to information that a full range of literacy can bring.
