Family Literacy

As we believe that parents and caregivers are the first teachers, we also offer a variety of programs for learning as a family in Antigonish and Paqtnkek First Nations, Afton. We encourage family members to write books we can publish through ACALA Press. Families are also encouraged to participate in our annual Family Writing Contest.
