The Canucks Family Education Centre (CFEC) Family Literacy program is a partnership between Britannia Community Services Centre Society, the Canucks for Kids Fund, The Vancouver Sun Raise-a-Reader program and 40 program partners. The Centre opened October 3, 2002.
The primary goal of the Canucks Family Education Centre is to develop and implement a seamless system of quality family literacy programming that works with existing service providers and institutions to create meaningful opportunities for children, youth and adults to learn together.
The mandate of the Canucks Family Education Centre is to positively impact low literacy levels on Vancouver’s Eastside and other locations throughout the Province of BC, by providing a co-coordinated, comprehensive, integrated services approach to family literacy and lifelong learning. This integrated services approach has two main purposes - to develop collaborative relationships between service providers and to share resources.
