Since 1992, Literacy Nova Scotia (LNS) has been supporting the literacy community by working to ensure that all Nova Scotians have equal access to quality literacy, essential skills, and lifelong learning opportunities.
Literacy Nova Scotia is a non-profit charitable umbrella organization that provides a
provincial forum for organizations and people to work together so that every adult has literacy and essential
skills learning opportunities. We do that by raising awareness about the state of literacy in the province and
the country, by promoting accessible programs for all, by collaborating with others who have similar
interests and goals to support and celebrate learning, and by making connections.
LNS provides funding, practitioner training, and learner financial awards. We also produce resources, share information about literacy, promote accessible programs for all, and collaborate with others in order to support and celebrate learning.
