Government of New Brunswick

Thank you for your input, the consultation period is now closed.

The provincial government established the New Brunswick Literacy Secretariat in the spring of 2015.

The Secretariat is leading the development of a comprehensive literacy strategy that will ensure all of the people of New Brunswick are able to participate fully in school, at work, at home and in their communities.

It is being led by two people who have been interested in literacy for a long time – Marilyn Trenholme Counsell and Liane Roy.

The New Brunswick Literacy Secretariat would like to hear from you. How can we implement a literacy strategy that fosters a culture of lifelong learning? How can we help those who have challenges with literacy?
