Creating a Canadian reading strategy

Reading is not only important to our development as individuals, it is also vital to our growth as a nation. The National Reading Campaign aims to develop a coordinated national strategy to promote reading. By exploring reading programs around the world, The National Reading Campaign has created The National Reading Plan. The Plan addresses ways to ensure that each of us — regardless of age, background, income level, level of education, or location — has access to reading of all kinds and in all platforms.

The National Reading Campaign also features the Readerly site which looks at Reading News, Reading for Pleasure, Children’s Book Reviews, Great Reads, Quizzes, Surveys and From the Web plus a parents’ tool kit to help your child to become a reader.

The National Reading Campaign also features the Reading Town Canada initiative. On the first week of May every year, the National Reading Campaign partners with a city to create an exemplary model of what a reading Canada looks like. In 2017, Reading Town Canada will be in Gatineau, QC. In previous years, citizens of Moose Jaw, Charlottetown, and Calgary wove reading into every aspect of their lives over one week through a series of amazing events.The National Reading Campaign also features the Reading Town Canada initiative.
