The AlphaNumérique Digital Literacy Project aims to make digital accessible to all, across Canada, especially victims of the digital divide. The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted and deepened this divide. To help solve the problem, the project offers learning activities to audiences and train library staff on teaching techniques in digital literacy. AlphaNumérique will be presented to participants to raise awareness of the role of libraries in promoting digital inclusion.

For citizens, the learning activities developed aim multiple aspects: online browsing, emailing, online security, fake news identification and so on. Workshops are offered online and in person by the Alphanumérique staff. People can also follow free tutorials on the project’s website.

As for the libraries, the workshops aim to empower the staff to create, organize and be able to provide coaching to the population on the matter of digital literacy fundamentals. The project also offers free downloadable and customizable content to offer or advertise the workshops.
