What does the PEI Literacy Alliance do?
Our mission is to advance literacy for the people of Prince Edward Island. Our vision is that all Islanders are able to participate fully in their family, work, and community.
We exist to:
- decrease gaps and overlaps in literacy services to adult learners and their families
- reduce barriers to people with low literacy levels
- inform Islanders about the personal costs of low literacy on economic, cultural, political and social aspects of life
- promote a culture where literacy is valued and celebrated across PEI
- Learning is lifelong.
- Literacy is a right.
- Literacy and learning open doors.
Literacy opens doors.
Our mission is to advance literacy for all the people of PEI.
We envision an Island where everyone has the skills they need to participate fully at work, home and in their community. We believe that building a culture of literacy and learning supports all Islanders to reach their full potential and help build a better future.

When people say “literacy,” we often think of reading and writing. Literacy is broader than that and also includes math, communication, digital, and thinking skills. These are the basic skills we need to navigate the world around us.
The level of your literacy skills often plays a large role in determining your income, health and community engagement.
