Literacy Day 2017


Initiated by a group of parents wanting to make a difference in the lives of children, the free Literacy & Learning Day Conference offers adults an opportunity to obtain skills, resources and knowledge that will help to support children in school and in life.  Literacy & Learning Day is a volunteer organized event that is professional, meaningful and easily accessible to all parents, grandparents and caregivers.

Our 15th annual Literacy & Learning Day Conference will take place on Saturday, October 28, 2017 at the Northlands Expo Centre in Edmonton.  In addition to many free workshop choices of varied topics which will assist adults in supporting the children in their lives, we are excited this year to announce DOUBLE-HEADER KEYNOTES - Barbara Coloroso & Alyson Schafer


Starting September in 2017 - All Edmonton Public (EPSB) and Edmonton Catholic (ECSD) will receive information about the conference for inclusion in their newsletter to encourage the parents to register online to attend this conference.  If a representative of your school community pre-orders brochures, in a quantity specific to your school or organization, we will do our best to accommodate that request. If not, each school will also receive 25 brochures to keep in the office for parents who would prefer a hard copy.

If you would like more than 25 brochures, or would like brochures sent to your organization / school outside of EPSB & ECSD, you can request them here.

Electronic copies of this brochure and registration form, as well as a one page ad suitable for insertion into a newsletter, will also be available in pdf format:

GENERAL Registration opens September 10, 2017! (Member registration starts August 27)

Please distribute this information to parents, grandparents and adults with children in their lives soon, as space is limited!


We need to raise $60,000 to cover the expenses of this year’s event including a modest lunch for all participants. In order to meet this goal, we are asking for sponsorships from businesses, organizations and individuals with similar charitable priorities. By giving to this annual event you will be helping to ensure that Literacy & Learning Day 2017 is FREE for all who attend. We understand that those who need our support the most may not be able to afford to attend an event of this caliber and we do not want money to be a barrier to attendance.
