Adult working group: Cross-national consultations on health and learning
The Report of The Adult Working Group, part of the Canadian Council of Learning, provides information on consultations in Vancouver, Regina, Toronto, Montreal and Nova Scotia in 2006- 2007. The consultations with individuals with low literacy skills, immigrants, and refugees and service providers who work with these groups were intended to identify themes, gaps, and needs related to health and learning among these target groups. The feedback was used by the Adult Working Group to develop a list of research and knowledge dissemination and mobilization priorities to better address health literacy issues experienced by vulnerable individuals in Canada.
