7.0 Conclusion

In fall 2002, the Literacy Council will begin a strategic planning process that will guide us through the next five years. The knowledge we have gained through this project will inform our planning, both in the short– and the long–term.

Our research and consultations were a preliminary step in beginning to build better partnerships with Aboriginal language communities. We are committed to acting on their suggestions wherever possible to improve our support for Aboriginal languages and literacy. We thank them for their overwhelming support for our work, and their generosity in sharing their ideas with us.
