This is the fourth literacy-related services directory for 2018. We have a new Aboriginal organization, Tsawalk Learning Centre for teens. Plus we have added several changes to the existing services in Nanaimo. Many of the organizations have added and created new programs to address the community needs.

We have some great services and programs here – thank you to all of you who promote literacy and assist those of us who need support around this basic human right whether it is related to reading, writing, computers, health or financial literacy.

I want to thank all of the organizations who are continuing to offer much needed services in the community. I would like to thank all those who have helped in creating and updating this directory. They are all extremely dedicated to literacy and have provided support and direction despite their busy schedules!!

A big thank you goes to both Brian O’Rooney team LCVI and Courtney Manhas our third year social work student who did her practicum with us, and worked hard making the changes. They are both very much appreciated.

If you have any recommendations for changes, comments, or wish to have a PDF of the directory please e-mail me at

My warm respect
Michele Hillier
LCVI Executive Director
