Preconference on Developing Immigrants’ Literacy and Essential Skills

November 15, 2017
Hilton Hotel – Toronto

The Preconference on Developing Immigrants’ Literacy and Essential Skills focuses on the results of a research project that aimed to assess the effects of improved levels of literacy and essential skills on the socio-economic integration of francophone immigrants, with a particular focus on workplace performance. The research project followed francophone immigrants (both those enrolled in educational programs and those not enrolled) to compare their outcomes. The results inform a cost-benefit analysis that assesses the return on investment of training in literacy and essential skills, which will be presented at the preconference. This preconference is organized by Actions Interculturelles and Pathways to Prosperity Partnership.
