moved for leave to introduce Bill C-316, An Act to establish a national literacy policy.
Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to table a bill entitled, “An Act to establish a national literacy policy”.
In essence, the bill calls on the government to improve literacy in our country by effectively promoting higher literacy standards for all Canadians. Creating a national literacy standard will help raise awareness and academic achievement for each and every Canadian.
With the production of the bill, I hope to promote higher education for those who once thought it unachievable by improving the opportunities for those who find literacy a barrier in their everyday life.
