About Us

The Canadian Institute of Reading Recovery Supports Early Literacy Learning Across Canada.

Established in 1993, the Canadian Institute of Reading Recovery is a not for profit organization that works collaboratively with wide-ranging and diverse educational communities across Canada.

Through expert one on one teaching that supplements classroom instruction, we focus on children who are most at risk in literacy learning.

Proven Results

Over 20 years of national implementation demonstrates that 100% of Reading Recovery students improve, and 70% are reading and writing at or above Grade level  after just a few weeks of lessons, and that they maintain grade level in successive years, thus ensuring that all children learn to read and write.
