Media Literacy Week

Join us from October 25-30, 2021!

About Media Literacy Week

Media Literacy Week (MLW) is an annual event promoting digital and media literacy across Canada. Schools, libraries, museums and community groups organize events and activities throughout the week.

In 2021, we’re celebrating each of the first five days of MLW by highlighting one of five media literacy themes - use, understand, engage, access and verify. Take part by becoming a Collaborator, planning digital and media literacy activities for your classroom, and by spreading the word on social media using #MediaLitWk!
