The prose literacy map of Canada
The result is an innovative look at the prose literacy landscape across Canada’s cities, towns, communities and neighbourhoods. In the map prose literacy is represented in two ways; 1) by average adult prose literacy scores (on a scale of 0 – 500), or 2) by regions of lower literacy. The latter depicts the proportion of the population that scored at the OECD’s prose-literacy Level 2 or below.
* Due to data limitations, off-reserve Native populations and certain parts of Northern Canada are not represented on the map.
