WE ARE NOW OPEN
Help us win $20,000.00 from Canada Helps.
Every $1 you donate to Orillia and District Literacy Council, through the DONATE VIA icon on the top of this webpage during the month of June, gives us a chance to win the Great Canadian Giving Challenge.
We help adults with reading, writing, spelling and math, along with essential skills and computer basics. Anyone over the age of 19 is welcome to join our FREE learning programs. Some students prefer to work on their own while being guided by a trained staff or volunteer while others like the comfort of learning in a small group. We customize it to your needs.
Funding provided by the Government of Canada through the Canada Job Grant Programs delivered by the Government of Ontario.
