In the present knowledge economy, written communication dominates a fast paced digital society. 48% of Canadians and 53% of Québécois between 16 and 65 years old do not have the reading and comprehension skills and 54% of Canadians and 55% of Québécois do not have the numeracy skills necessary to perform well in their daily lives, and at work where the tasks are more complex. This is a national alarming economic challenge! It creates major negative socioeconomic impacts for individuals, firms and society, and slows the enrichment for all. The documentary analyzes the current situation and demonstrates how innovative solutions at school, for people living in poverty, for firms and for society, are a win-win outcome for all. Why are we all waiting to take action?
