On January 27 each year, ABC Life Literacy Canada hosts Family Literacy Day - the largest national family literacy event in Canada.
OCNA members are encouraged to use resources provided by the organization to celebrate and show support for the event. Print and Web ads, along with other materials, are available online at www.abclifeliteracy.ca/family-literacy.
Family Literacy Day was created in 1999 and raises awareness for the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family. Various organizations, schools, libraries and media groups will coordinate numerous literacy-themed events and activities across the country in honour of this special initiative.
