The Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF)

The Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF) is the new cornerstone of Employment Ontario’s Literacy and Basic Skills Program, which helped over 67,000 adult learners work toward achieving their goals in 2010-2011.

The OALCF is a competency-based framework that supports the development of adult literacy programming delivered through the Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) Program. LBS helps learners transition to their goals of work, further education and training, or independence.

The OALCF:

  • Supports the development of task-based programming
  • Helps practitioners focus on strengthening the learner’s ability to integrate skills, knowledge and behaviours to perform authentic, goal related tasks
  • Supports the development of contextualized programming that reflects the learner’s culture, language and other features specific to the learner and her/his goal
  • Builds on current literacy practice and strengthens the links between the LBS Program and Ontario’s employment, education and training system.
