Literacy impacts our health

If you want to find out how to improve your health and well-being, head over to Ècole Sir John Franklin School this weekend to the NWT Wellness Conference.  The NWT Literacy Council will be there, along with about 400 other participants.

As a literacy council we’re interested in wellness, because the overall health literacy in Canada is low, and it’s even lower in the NWT. Almost 60% of our population has low literacy levels.

Our New Year’s resolutions

The New Year is when we resolve to do better and be better.  The NWT Literacy Council is no different. 

We have a link to our blog on our new website, but during 2013 blogging regularly got pushed off the side of everyone’s desks in light of more urgent tasks.  2014 will be different!  We WILL blog. 

We want our blog to be a place we can raise literacy issues and share information.  We want it to be interactive and stimulate discussion.  We welcome ideas for topics for our blog and guest bloggers.

New Website!

We expect that anyone developing a new website will feel like we do right now – whew! Finally! Working on a new website requires lots of attention to details and strong communication with the developer.

We hope that you can find what you want more easily on our new website.  People are often surprised at how much is on our site.  We have dozens and dozens of resources to help family, adult and community educators and program coordinators do their jobs.  There are great ideas for parents and anyone interested in literacy or education.
