Our Story

Reading Alberta empowers educators and administrators with free tools for seamless implementation of Alberta’s ELA curriculum in K-3. With extensive expertise in evidence-based structured literacy, our founders draw from decades of research and practical classroom success.

Having personally utilized this method and accumulated 40 years of combined experience in public, separate, and private school systems in Calgary, we understand the vital role of support. Through our Tier 3 practices and specialized literacy interventions, we've conducted professional development sessions across Western Canada.

As a non-profit organization, Reading Alberta serves as your independent hub, offering guidance, professional development, and resources. Our commitment to structured literacy is unwavering, transcending politics, ensuring your confidence in guiding students toward proficiency and confidence in reading.

We envision a society where individuals, regardless of their background, have equal opportunities to access quality education and literacy resources.

 

Through our programs, we aspire to build a community that values and celebrates the transformative power of literacy.

 

Our vision is a future where every person, young and old, can navigate the written word with confidence, unlocking a world of possibilities and contributing meaningfully to their communities.
