Online Resources

Please note that some materials may reflect our previous name and brand - Ontario Literacy Coalition - but that all materials remain the property of Essential Skills Ontario.

Elevate is a dynamic new website that guides human resources professionals through industry-specific essential skills solutions to their identified needs.

The Spotlight on Learning website was originally created to feed the momentum following Essential Skills Ontario’s 2010 Spotlight on Learning: Becoming Agents of Change Conference. The website is now offline - all workshop videos can be viewed on our YouTube channel - To request specific information please email

As part of our commitment to continue inspire and encourage agents of change in the literacy and essential skills field, Essential Skills Ontario hosts monthly webinars free of charge to anyone interested. Topics range from essential skills in the workplace to leadership techniques. Previously recorded webinars, as well as upcoming ones can be found on our website.
