Displaced Workers Project: Case Studies

The Displaced Workers Project: Case Studies is a report written by nine BC literacy outreach coordinators. They tell the stories of how workers, their families and entire communities in BC have been impacted by major job loss and the literacy and essential skills supports and training that could help them find new employment.

The Enhancing Displaced Workers Literacy and Essential Skills project is a collaborative project managed by Decoda Literacy Solutions and supported by Social Research and Demonstration Corporation (SRDC) and Learning Metrix. The project is funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Adult Learning, Literacy and Essential Skills Program.
