The Decoda Literacy Conference 2024

Join us for interactive group learning.

April 17-19, 2024 at the Radisson Hotel Vancouver Airport, Richmond, BC.

Every two years the Decoda Literacy Conference brings together BC’s provincial literacy network for interactive, dynamic and informative learning sessions.

Attendees include leaders in adult learning, key members of the public and private sector, and literacy practitioners working in community-based literacy programs for people of all ages.

The Decoda Literacy Conference will be an interactive, dynamic and informative learning experience! Together, through an exciting knowledge exchange, over 200 participants will focus on emerging trends and critical issues and develop skills to tackle literacy challenges that face British Columbians.

Our conference theme is “Literacy: The Ripple Effect.”

Literacy touches every aspect of people’s lives. Literacy programs, supports and practitioners have a ripple effect throughout communities.

Literacy intersects with and contributes to our health, employment, food security, personal wellbeing, continued learning, communication, community and the economy.

The conference will have keynote speakers, networking and workshops and learning sessions on a variety of literacy topics that may include:

  • Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Accessibility
  • Poverty reduction
  • Adult literacy
  • Family literacy
  • Financial, health and/or digital literacy
  • Literacy and essential skills
  • Clear language and design
  • Community capacity building
  • Nonprofit leadership and management
  • Services for immigrant and refugee adults, children and families

Check back to this page for more information coming in December! 

Registration opens in January.

We value diversity in the communities we bring together. Our goal is to create an inclusive, respectful conference environment that invites participation from people of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions, and sexual orientation.
