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


We do not have the funds to print, and distribute, conference posters, brochures and registration forms as we have in the past; email notification of open registration will commence in early September to those individuals and organizations who have requested such.
By providing a key contact name and email address to, this will enable us to send direct updates as to the status of the 2017 Literacy and Learning Day Conference, as well as any relevant registration information. We will count on your key contact to then determine the best way to share this information with others in your organization and/or community.

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

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.
