A significant gap in information related to the profile and needs of the Literacy and Essential Skills (LES) workforce was identified in two recent studies of the LES sector.1 To fill this gap, the Canadian Literacy and Learning Network (CLLN), with funding from the Office of Literacy and Essential Skills (Human Resources and Skills Development Canada), is conducting a Labour Market Study of Literacy and Essential Skills workers. In support of this study, CLLN engaged the Social Research and Demonstration Corporation (SRDC) to administer a national survey of practitioners in the LES field.
