The Vision of the Western Quebec Literacy Council is to help and encourage members of our community to develop the skills needed for life-long learning, enabling them to reach their full potential.

The Mission of Western Quebec Literacy Council is to help English-speaking adults, families and youth improve their reading, writing, listening, speaking, numeracy and other life skills through programs adapted to the needs of the individual. As a charitable volunteer organization, Western Quebec Literacy council recruits and trains committed volunteers as tutor and support personnel. We are dedicated to promoting community awareness with sensitivity throughout the region of West Quebec.

Our Services 

Western Quebec Literacy Council is a volunteer organization that offers free, private lessons to adults who want to improve their reading, writing skills, math, and computer skills. We train volunteers as literacy tutors.
The volunteer tutor meets with their student for a 1-2 hour lesson each week in their home community.

Please contact us to request the help of a weekly individual tutor. Or contact us to take our tutor training course to become a volunteer literacy tutor.
