One goal is to raise the ratio of the population with Level 3 literacy skills over five to ten years. 2. A robust curriculum framework to create logical pathways for students moving from programs given by community organizations to school boards, colleges, workplaces and others. 3. Recognition by all institutions of the credits awarded by others in the system within the curriculum framework. 4. A policy framework which integrates literacy development with community economic and social development. 5. Creative targeting of
programs to disadvantaged populations,lope parents, immigrants, young drop-outs, offenders and so on, with unique needs. 6. Financial and professional development systems to give community-based organizations the capacity to plan for the medium-term and to design programs which are responsive to local needs. 7. A student identifier number to permit effective program management and continuing improvement in program design. Positive impacts: 1. It makes people care more about the literacy level. When literacy and social service organizations work together, they can create strong leverage and social development for the local economy. If people have the ability to read and write, the Canadian society and economy will be greatly improved. 2. For society, literacy skills are productivity, wealth creation and competitiveness. They also help citizens participate, reduce crime rates and population health. Negative impacts: 1. It needs a large amount of money and we should care about how much the people can accept about the literacy knowledge. It needs the employers to invest with unwillingness to make the employees improve without bringing equal or more benefits to them. 2. when the community organizations, that could create the portals to literacy development, be regarded as the essential resources for engaging more learners, to some extent, they are marginalizing themselves.
