Literacy and Essential Skills

Building Capacity

The LBS program was established in 1997, and is a key component of EO – Ontario’s strategy to transform the province’s labour market training and employment system.

Without basic literacy and essential skills, individuals are disadvantaged in their pursuit of employment, further education, training opportunities and increasing personal independence

Employment Ontario Service Promise

Combined Efforts

The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Univerisities directed LBS Programs to focus of fulfilling the EO Service Promise by increasing the employability of LBS learners by supporting clear pathways within EO and across the broader education and training system; providing high quality instruction that utilizes innovative approaches to supporting learning in technology-rich environments; and strengthening the capacity of the LBS service delivery network.
