Family Literacy Day is a national awareness initiative created by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1999 and held annually on January 27 to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family.

January 27, 2019 is the 20th Anniversary of Family Literacy Day!


Taking time every day to read or do a learning activity with children is crucial to a child’s development, improving a child’s literacy skills dramatically, and can help a parent improve their skills as well.


Barbara Reid, award-winning Canadian author and illustrator, is the Honourary Chair of Family Literacy Day, click here to download her "Take 20" activities that will get families learning together for 20 minutes a day!
