Current Campaign

Incarcerated Population of Ontario


Literal Change is currently operating in Toronto’s two maximum security detention centres, The Toronto East Detention Centre and The Toronto South Detention Centre.

This project has been in operation since August 2016. We provide one-to-one literacy intervention and have a total of 15 volunteers frequenting the facilities on a regular basis.

We work with 3 different types of students:

  • Individuals with low-literacy levels

  • GED and high school diploma hopefuls

  • English as a Second Language Learners
