Office of Literacy and Essential Skills (2012-2014. 2018-2019)
From 2011-2013, CCDF partnered with Employment and Social Development Canada’s Office of Literacy and Essential Skills, the Assembly of First Nations, the Métis National Council, and the Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami to bring FIMESIP to life.
In 2018 CCDF undertook the current project, Extending Promising Practice: Updating the FIMES Inventory with support from Employment and Social Development Canada’s Office of Literacy and Essential Skills, and a National Advisory Group with representatives from Indigenous and/or Essential Skills-focused organizations from across the country. The current FIMESIP Project is an extension of the work started in 2011. The first FIMESIP built an online inventory of LES initiatives and established a Community of Practice. FIMESIP’s current objectives are to update the inventory of LES initiatives, revitalize and grow the LES Community of Practice, and share resources based on the 12 Markers of Promising Practice. The 12 Markers of Promising Practice identified during the initial project are present in all of the project’s Case Studies, and are the basis of the newly developed Promising Practices Self-Assessment Tool.
Information about the project, the inventory, the Markers of Promising practice and the Self-Assessment Tool are all available on the FIMESIP web site.
