On Thursday, June 7th, 2018, the Metro Toronto Movement for Literacy (MTML) will hold its 16th annual Learners’ Conference at the Bickford Centre. The conference gathers over 250 learners from adult literacy programs across the City of Toronto and York Region.

A Literacy Learner’s Vision

The first Learners’ Conference was the idea of an MTML board member who was also an adult literacy learner.  Having attended a number of conferences as part of his volunteer work in the community, he suggested a conference be held for learners that reflected a range of interests beyond literacy learning.  The initial conference was held in June of 2003.  The response was extremely positive with lots of suggestions for ‘next year’.  An annual event was born!


Adult learners come together for the free event that features workshops, lunch, and the presentation of the Ontario Library Association’s Golden Oak Book Award Ceremony.

Celebrate the Love of Reading

From the beginning, a highlight of the conference has been the presentation of the Golden Oak Book Award.  The winning author is selected by the Ontario Library Association’s Golden Oak Book Club, a book club for adult literacy learners.  Over the years, many nominated authors have attended and are moved at how their work has helped strengthen the learners’ love of reading.
