"Literacy is more than the ability to read and write. It involves the knowledge, skills, and abilities - the competencies - that enable individuals to think critically, communicate effectively, deal with change and solve problems in a variety of contexts to achieve their personal goals, develop their knowledge and potential and participate fully in society."
- Alberta Education, Literacy First (2010)
