A Plain Language Handbook


The NWT Literacy Council wrote and produced this handbook. The Department of Education, Culture, and Employment, Government of the Northwest Territories funded the project.

A big thanks to the people who reviewed the handbook. Your comments were very helpful.

The project also produced a Plain Language Audit Tool as a separate document. You do an audit to find out if your documents use plain language.
