Cultural Streams

In order to respond to distinct learner needs, Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) funding distinguishes among four cultural streams: Anglophone, Francophone, Native and Deaf and Blind learners. Links to the websites of our partners can also be found below.

La Coalition ontarienne de formation des adultes (La Coalition) offers support services to providers of French language Literacy and Basic Skills programs working in the community, school board and college sectors.

Ontario Native Literacy Coalition (ONLC) is a provincial networking and field development organization supporting and serving Native literacy practitioners and learners in Ontario.
