Deputy Minister’s OfficeRoom 112, Legislative BuildingWinnipeg, Manitoba, Canada R3C 0V8Honourable Flor MarcelinoMinister of Multiculturalism and LiteracyRoom 343, Legislative BuildingWinnipeg MB R3C 0V8Dear Minister:I have the pleasure of presenting the 5th Annual Report for the Manitoba Adult Literacy Strategy. Itincludes a summary of the Manitoba Adult Literacy Program, and the 11th Annual Report for AdultLearning Centres in Manitoba for the program year ending June 30, 2014.The Department of Multiculturalism and Literacy administers The Adult Literacy Act (2009), whichrequires the development, implementation and evaluation of a provincial adult literacy strategy. Thestrategy consists of five components: the Manitoba Adult Literacy Program focus, Adult Learning Centresfocus, Workforce Development/Employment focus, English as an Additional Language / Immigrant focus,and the Aboriginal focus.As part of the Manitoba Adult Literacy Program focus, in 2013-2014 the Department delivered training onThe Manitoba Adult Literacy Learner Assessment (MALLA) Guide to assist funded agencies to assesslearners’ literacy levels upon entry, during and upon exit from the program, using consistent tools andprocesses. The Department developed a new credential for adult literacy instructors and partnered with theContinuing Education Division of the University of Manitoba to deliver a course on adult literacyinstruction, which is a component of the new credential.The Department also administers The Adult Learning Centres Act (2003) that enables the registration ofadult learning centres to provide high school credit programming for adults. Adult literacy programsfunded under the Manitoba Adult Literacy Program and registered adult learning centres are known asCertified Adult Learning and Literacy Centres. These Centres provide tuition-free programming to enableadults to increase their literacy levels and to complete high school credits and diplomas.Educational attainment is strongly connected to improved income levels and to health and well-being.Programming aimed at increasing literacy skills and delivering high school credentials for adults ensuresthat all Manitobans have opportunities to seek advancement through educational and training opportunities,to find meaningful and sustainable employment and to engage in civic society and community life.For the 2013-2014 program year, 2,586,200 was allocated to 34 agencies to provide adult literacyprogramming at 55 locations. Funding of 16,804,900 was allocated to 39 of the 42 registered adultlearning centres to provide high school programming at 84 locations across Manitoba. In total, 10,663adults attended Certified Adult Learning and Literacy Centres across Manitoba.The dedicated teachers, instructors, staff and volunteers of the Certified Adult Learning and LiteracyCentres are instrumental to the success of Manitoba’s adult learners. The Department commends them fortheir effort and contribution toward creating better futures for Manitobans and their families.Respectfully submitted,Original signed byTerry GoertzenDeputy Minister

Il comprend un sommaire du Programme d’alphabétisation des adultes du Manitoba ainsi que le onzièmerapport annuel sur les centres d’apprentissage pour adultes pour l’année de programme qui a pris fin le 30 juin 2014.Le ministère des Affaires multiculturelles et de l’Alphabétisation assure l’application de la Loi sur l’alphabétisationdes adultes (2009), qui exige l’élaboration, la mise en œuvre et l’évaluation d’une stratégie provinciale visantl’alphabétisation des adultes. La stratégie comprend les cinq éléments suivants : le Programme d’alphabétisation desadultes du Manitoba, les centres d’apprentissage pour adultes, le perfectionnement de la main-d’œuvre etl’employabilité, l’anglais langue additionnelle pour immigrants, ainsi que les programmes axés sur les Autochtones.En 2013-2014, dans le cadre du Programme d’alphabétisation des adultes du Manitoba, le ministère a offert de laformation sur le guide d’évaluation des apprenants adultes en alphabétisation du Manitoba afin d’aider lesorganismes subventionnés à évaluer le niveau d’alphabétisation des apprenants lors de leur entrée et de leur sortie duprogramme, ainsi que pendant celui-ci, à l’aide d’outils et de processus uniformes. Le ministère a élaboré unenouvelle attestation pour les instructeurs d’alphabétisation des adultes, dont l’une des composantes est un cours surl’enseignement de l’alphabétisation aux adultes offert en partenariat avec la division de l’éducation permanente del’Université du Manitoba.Le ministère applique aussi la Loi sur les centres d’apprentissage pour adultes (2003), qui prévoit que les centresd’apprentissage pour adultes peuvent s’enregistrer afin d’offrir des programmes d’obtention d’unités d’étudessecondaires aux adultes.

IIIntroductionLiteracy skills lead to life-long opportunities. For adults, literacy skills are needed to obtain anduse information effectively, to engage in the economy and to cope with the demands of society.Acquiring and developing literacy skills is a part of everyday living – at home, school, work and inthe community. Strong literacy skills ensure that adults are in a good position to find meaningfuland sustainable employment, to seek advancement through educational and training opportunitiesand to engage in society and community life.Manitoba Multiculturalism and Literacy is dedicated to ensuring that educational opportunitiesare available to adults in Manitoba to improve their literacy skills and to obtain the necessary highschool credits and credentials needed to further their education and employment goals.The department leads the adult literacy strategy, a requirement of The Adult Literacy Act, in aprovince-wide collaboration of government and non-government stakeholders. The act formalizesthe Manitoba Adult Literacy Program and includes Adult Learning Centres, registered under theAdult Learning Centres Act, as components of the strategy. Additional components of The AdultLiteracy Strategy include a Workforce Development/Employment focus, an English as an AdditionalLanguage (EAL)/Immigrant Focus and an Aboriginal Focus.This publication includes:n the fifth annual report of the Manitoba Adult Literacy Strategy, including a summary of theManitoba Adult Literacy Program, andn the eleventh annual report of Adult Learning Centres in Manitoba.Standing here today with smiles, tears of joy and anoverwhelming feeling of success, I know this is just thebeginning of a brand new start.The completion of my high school education will open up many greatopportunities, of that I am sure. The dreams I could not realize are now withinmy immediate reach. There were times when I felt like just giving up butsomething kept me coming back. What really matters the most is that I’m here.I’ve got my education and the diploma to prove it. My future will never be“just a dream” any more. It feels great.Shannon, Frontier School Division Adult Education Program3
IIManitoba Adult Literacy StrategyAnnual Report (2013-2014)Higher literacy skills lead to reduced poverty and improved health and well-being of individuals,families and communities. Additionally, strong literacy skills help position Manitoba’s adults to takefull advantage of current and future employment opportunities.In Manitoba, adult literacy refers to the skill base that enables people to participate in and adaptto change in the workplace, the home and community life. It provides a foundation for furtherlearning and includes the following:n literacy skills: reading, writing and document usen numeracy skillsn thinking skills to learn and solve problemsn oral communication and interpersonal skills.The Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) is the latestOrganisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) assessment of skills andcompetencies needed for adults to participate in society and for economies to prosper. PIAACmeasures the skills and abilities of the Canadian population aged 16 to 65 in literacy, numeracy andproblem-solving in a technology-rich environment. PIAAC was administered in Manitoba and allCanadian jurisdictions in 2011-2012 with results published in October 2013.Initial analysis of Manitoba’s PIAAC results indicate that 16 per cent of Manitoba’s population, aged16 to 65, approximately 192,600 individuals, score at the lowest levels of literacy and numeracy.This is slightly better than the 17 per cent result for the Canadian population. Characteristics ofthese adults in Manitoba include: they tend to have only a high school diploma, or less; they tend tobe male, neither parent tends to have a high school diploma, they tend to be over 45 years of age,and they tend to speak a language other than English or French.The PIAAC results also confirm that Manitobans with higher levels of education tend to have higherliteracy and numeracy proficiency. Proficiency is strongly related to level of educational attainment.Manitobans with the highest levels of literacy proficiency are more likely to have high wages, tobe employed, and to report being in good to excellent health. Adult literacy programs and adultlearning centres are instrumental in providing Manitobans with the opportunity to develop theirliteracy and numeracy skills and obtain a high school diploma.Further analysis of Manitoba data will continue to inform updates to the Manitoba Adult LiteracyStrategy for the next few years.The Adult Literacy Act mandates the development of a provincial adult literacy strategy to ensureall Manitobans have the literacy skills to fully participate in and benefit from the province’s socialand economic systems.The Adult Learning and Literacy Branch of Manitoba Multiculturalism and Literacy leads thedevelopment, implementation and evaluation of the Manitoba Adult Literacy Strategy. Thestrategy consists of five components within a framework that is intended to be dynamic andflexible to address adult literacy needs in Manitoba’s changing social and economic context.A cross-government Adult Literacy Table co-ordinates the development, implementation andevaluation of the Manitoba Adult Literacy Strategy.4
Components of the Manitoba Adult Literacy StrategyManitoba Adult Literacy ProgramFocuses on encouraging and supporting agencies funded under the Manitoba Adult Literacy Program(MALP) to meet the requirements of the Adult Literacy Act, Regulations, and the MALP Funding Criteria.Adult Learning CentresFocuses on encouraging the development of programming in adult learning centres, and in partnershipwith other education and training institutes, to support adult learners to improve their literacy skills inorder to participate more successfully in further education and training.Workforce Development/Employment FocusFocuses on strengthening partnerships between organizations funded by Adult Learning and Literacyand other government departments and services, employers and community agencies in order tostreamline services for adult learners with employment related goals.English as an Additional Language (EAL)/Immigrant FocusFocuses on collaboration across departments to streamline access to education and training programsby EAL/Immigrant adult learners who seek to improve their language and literacy skills in order toachieve their economic, educational, and personal goals.Aboriginal FocusFocuses on enhancing and developing programming and curricula for adult literacy programs andadult learning centres that are culturally, regionally, and educationally appropriate for Aboriginaladult learners in both adult literacy programs and adult learning centres.5
Manitoba Adult Literacy Program FocusThe Manitoba Adult Literacy Program (MALP), formalized as a component of the Adult LiteracyStrategy by The Adult Literacy Act (2009), provides support to agencies that offer literacy programsfor adults seeking to improve their literacy skills.Strategy activities for this component are focused on supporting MALP-funded agencies and theirstaff to provide quality programming that meets the requirements of the act, regulations, theMALP funding criteria and departmental policies.Manitoba Adult Literacy Learner Assessment ProcessesThe MALP funding criteria states that learner assessment is to be conducted in the context of theManitoba Stages Framework. Further policy direction states that The Manitoba Adult LiteracyLearner Assessment (MALLA) Guide, developed in 2012-2013, is to be used in fulfilling thisrequirement.In 2013-2014, Adult Learning and Literacy delivered training for staff at MALP-funded programs onthe requirements and application of The MALLA Guide.The MALLA Guide provides MALP-funded agencies with common tools and consistent processes fordetermining and recording learners’ literacy placement levels at intake, their ongoing progress andtheir literacy levels upon exit from the program. By 2014/2015, all funded programs will be requiredto use MALLA processes as the basis for assessing and reporting learner placement and progress.These tools and processes also assist in the development of individual learning and instructionalplans.Upgrading was helpful to me because I had no basicknowledge of what I was supposed to do as a student.When I first began the program, I struggled and my teachers told me to relaxand that we would get through this together. From then on I felt the care thatthey had, they really believed in me. . They gave me the knowledge and skillsI needed to become a successful graduate. If I did not attend the upgradingprogram I probably would not have made it this far. I am grateful for myupgrading teachers, the time and effort they put into their job as educators isfantastic. I could not have made a better choice than to attend school with theKelsey Adult Learning Centre.Haley (Kelsey Learning Centre)6
Adult Literacy Instructor TrainingThe Adult Literacy Act and General Regulation requires instructors in adult literacy programs tohave the knowledge and skills to perform their roles.In 2013-2014, the department announced a new credential for adult literacy instructors: theManitoba Standard for Adult Literacy Instructors: Level One. This credential is based on a projectundertaken between 2005 and 2008 to profile the essential skills of Manitoba adult literacyinstructors and to identify the core competencies of adult literacy instruction. The ManitobaCompetency Standard for Adult Literacy Instructors, based on these profiles, provides a definition ofwhat instructors must know and do to be effective in their role as literacy instructors in Manitoba.Also in 2013-2014, Adult Learning and Literacy entered into a partnership with the ContinuingEducation Division of the University of Manitoba to make available a professional developmentopportunity for adult literacy instructors. “Adult Literacy: From Theory to Practice” was delivered asan online course for the first time during the winter of 2014. Grounded in adult learning principlesand aligned with the competency standards for adult literacy instructors, the course provides anintroduction to the theory and practice of teaching adults with literacy concerns.“Adult Literacy: From Theory to Practice” can be applied towards the new credential for adultliteracy instructors: Manitoba Standard for Adult Literacy Instructors: Level One. The departmentprovided bursaries to eight instructors working in MALP-funded agencies who successfullycompleted the course.Adult Learning Centres FocusStrategy activities for this component focus on the provision of literacy level programming atregistered adult learning centres (ALCs) that enables adult learners to improve their academicskills in order to move forward successfully into high school credit programming. Twelve agenciesreceived funding under the Manitoba Adult Literacy Program in addition to their ALC grant toinclude literacy level instruction for those learners needing to upgrade their skills prior to enrollingin high school courses.The advancement of learners from adult literacy programming into high school programmingis encouraged and supported through a system that recognizes high school level achievementspreviously attained by those learners. For example, adult learners who have completed a ManitobaStage 3 level portfolio in an adult literacy program may apply to receive up to two elective creditstoward a Mature Student High School Diploma, either through a registered adult learning centre orthrough an articulation arrangement with the local
