The Moncton Regional Learning Council cordially invites you to attend the International Literacy Day Forum on Monday, Sept. 8, from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Moncton Lions Community Centre, 473 St. George Street, Moncton. Registration will start at 8:30 a.m. A continental breakfast will be available.

Low literacy continues to be a critical issue in this province on many fronts, from economic growth to public health. Forum attendees will gain a better understanding of the impact of low functional literacy skills among our older youth and adults and how we can achieve significant improvements by working together.

To help meet the Forum’s objectives and to set the stage for the subsequent discussion, you will hear from a panel of local experts:
• Deanna Allen, Executive Director of Laubach Literacy New Brunswick
• Michelina Mancuso, Executive Director – Performance Measurement, New Brunswick Health Council
• Nadine Duguay, Executive Director, 21inc.
• David Campbell, President, Jupia Consultants

Guest speakers at the event will include:
• Marilyn Luscombe, President and CEO, New Brunswick Community College
• Kathy DeWitt, Manager of Employment and Recruitment, City of Moncton
• Jules Côté, a 19-year-old Moncton resident whose literacy journey continues to inspire

The Moncton Regional Learning Council, a member of Laubach Literacy New Brunswick, has been helping older youth and adult learners improve their literacy skills through a one-on-one, free and confidential tutoring program for more than 35 years.

Admission to the Moncton Literacy Forum is free of charge, but your presence and participation are priceless. We hope you will join us. To help with the planning and catering arrangements, we kindly ask that you RSVP by Friday, Sept. 5, to Peter Sawyer at If you require more information, please do not hesitate to call Peter at 388-3013.
