Seeking Expressions of Interests to Bring Early Words Program to More Clinics
The Early Words program launched in Iqaluit in 2020 and is now operating in 12 clinics in Nunavut, as well as two clinics in Winnipeg. They provide free books, training and resources to support health care professionals integrate early literacy into their practice.
The program is seeking Expressions of Interest from health care clinics and hospitals whose patient population includes children aged five and under experiencing barriers to literacy – such as families with low literacy, limited access to programs and resources, and low socioeconomic status. They provide access to books and resources to help professionals counsel families on early literacy.
