Raising readers benefits everyone

Reading is something most take for granted. For about 40 per cent of Canadians, however literacy competence is below average.
One of the Boogie's four beneficiaries is the Postmedia Raise-a-Reader program. It raises funds for literacy programs across Canada. In Saskatchewan, it provides funding to literacy groups like the Saskatchewan Literacy Network. The group's main goal is to support family literacy programming and education in the province.
One of the most recent ways they are doing that is through family literacy webinar sessions. Experts discuss the community impact of family literacy development and the latest research in the field, along with cultural understanding.
