Essential Skills Day

Today is the 10th anniversary of Essential Skills Day! It’s a day to raise awareness of the nine key skills that are important for work and daily life. These skills, identified by the Government of Canada, are the foundation for learning other skills and evolving at work and adapting to change.

What is each skill? How is it used? What jobs use the skill? ABC Life Literacy Canada has developed an Essential Skills Day tip sheet that answers these questions.
