In 2020, British Columbia will celebrate the achievements of a literacy-related organization helping Indigenous, workplace or community literacy learners in B.C. acquire the literacy skills they need to improve their lives. This includes Indigenous language, numerical, digital and other forms of literacy. In B.C., the award is administered by the Ministry of Education.
This year, the award will go to a literacy-related organization in B.C. providing leadership in the field through partnerships and collaboration, and that demonstrates outstanding achievement, innovative practice and excellence in literacy. Selection of the recipient will be evidence-based.
Employees of the Government of British Columbia, members of the selection committee and their families or past winners are not eligible for the British Columbia Council of the Federation Literacy Award.
