Developing a Plan for Revising the CLB Literacy Benchmarks

In January, Alberta Human Services agreed to fund CCLB to develop a process/methodology for revising the Canadian Language Benchmarks: ESL for Literacy Learners document, an activity that will be undertaken by the Government of Manitoba in fiscal 2013-2014 and funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada. A call for proposals for an ESL literacy consultant has been awarded to Bow Valley College and work is now underway. The work involves a consultation with 100 stakeholders across Canada who work in the area of ESL literacy, assessment, or materials development. Once feedback is analyzed, a draft plan for the revision will be prepared with guidance from the project advisory committee. The final report will then be provided to Manitoba for implementation.
