The 2007 TD Bank Financial Group’s report on the state of literacy in Canada concluded that improving the average literacy skills of Canadians is the single greatest opportunity for achieving a high return on public investment. Specifically, Canada should invest heavily to improve early literacy to capture the benefits that accrue over a lifetime.
Researchers estimate that over the lifetime of participants in an early literacy intervention program, returns to the public are $7.16 for every dollar invested". (Schweinhart et al., 1993).
According to the National Strategy for Early Learning, 2009 report
by the Canadian Language and Literacy Research Network:
Identifying and intervening at an early age with children who are at risk for poor language, literacy and learning outcomes as a result of sensory or cognitive development factors is essential for these children’s future success. Early identification and remediation of such developmental issues can significantly improve outcomes for children and can be highly cost effective.
