The Literacy Now Burnaby task group is a planning committee comprised of local institutions and agencies stewarded by the Burnaby Neighbourhood House. We are part of a province-wide network of 100 Literacy Task Groups with Literacy Outreach Coordinators who support literacy in 400 communities in British Columbia. We are funded in part by the B.C. Government via Decoda Literacy Solutions to support people in reaching their literacy goals.
Our task group is dedicated to working in partnership with community groups and organizations to build and enhance literacy services, programs and networks in Burnaby. Our mission is to identify literacy needs in Burnaby and seek ways to encourage community efforts to add literacy components and supports to current programs or create new literacy initiatives where needed.
