The goals of The Word On The Street Canada are:
• Fostering awareness and appreciation of the written word;
• Involving the public in a celebration of the writing and reading; and,
• Promoting the importance of literacy in the lives of all Canadians.
About Our Charity
The Word On The Street is a national celebration of literacy and the written word. On one extraordinary Sunday each September, in communities coast to coast, the public is invited to participate in hundreds of author events, presentations and workshops and to browse a marketplace that boasts the best selection of Canadian books and magazines you'll find anywhere. There is always plenty to see and do at Canada's largest book and magazine festival, and best of all, The Word On The Street and all of its events are FREE!
