Family Literacy Day

Familiy Day is a national initiative that promotes the importance of reading and learning together as a family. Every year, on January 27, families and communities across Canada celebrate this special day at literacy-themed events coordinated by literacy organizations, schools and libraries. Family Literacy Day is promoted through a national marketing campaign, with advertising in magazines and newspapers, on TV, radio and the Internet, as well as public relations initiatives, and corporate support from companies like Honda Canada, the Founding Sponsor of Family Literacy Day.
