Decoda Literacy Solutions has launched

May 30, 2011 marks the launch of Decoda Literacy Solutions, B.C.'s new provincial literacy organization.  It brings together the work, experience and expertise of Literacy BC and the literacy department of 2010 Legacies Now.

Literacy is more than just reading and writing. It's a key strategy which can help solve fundamental societal issues and economic challenges. At all stages of our lives, literacy is essentially about decoding information, events and situations so we can succeed and prosper. Now, more than ever before, literacy is all about making sense of the modern world.

By supporting and expanding the work being done by literacy groups and community partners throughout the province, we want to take literacy to the next level in BC. Our vision is a culture of community-based learning and literacy that supports the full continuum of priorities that have been identified by communities - from early childhood to family, adult, workplace and emerging literacies.
