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.


The LNS Resource Hub was created for literacy practitioners and adult learning educators who teach, tutor or mentor adult learners in Nova Scotia, and are employed by or affiliated with NSCC or a community learning organization. It enables practitioners to easily share and co-develop teaching resources while also providing an online forum to discuss literacy resources and best practices. New resources are continually being added to the growing resource library.


Literacy Nova Scotia's eCampus is home to our Practitioner Training (PT) and Certification Program modules. The online foundational training was created for literacy practitioners and education service providers who wish to learn the fundamentals of working with adult learners. The program provides essential training to practitioners in their first year of working with adult literacy learners, but seasoned practitioners are welcome to register..

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.
