Manitoba's Literacy and Numeracy Strategy

Manitoba's Vision for Literacy and Numeracy

The Manitoba government is committed to ensuring that all Manitobans have the literacy and numeracy foundations they need to lead full and productive lives from cradle to careers. This includes everything from parenting to budgeting, to success in school and the workplace, and active citizenship.

The January 2018 Manitoba Summit on Literacy and Numeracy echoed this vision and the importance of achieving it in the spirit of reconciliation, innovation and continuous improvement.

Literacy and Numeracy

Literacy and numeracy are the foundation of all learning.

They involve more than reading and writing words or adding and subtracting numbers

They are skills that everyone needs to be successful in school, in the workplace and in other areas of life.
