  • Adult education curriculum The network of school boards under Quebec's Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport continues the optional implementation of new adult‑education curricula, including areas related to adult literacy. The Quebec general adult education curriculum has been reworked with a view to providing adults with opportunities to enrich their skills in order to meet the many demands arising from social, economic, and cultural change in the 21st century. To that end, curricula include both knowledge and skills acquisition and content related to various societal functions in various areas of adults' daily lives.
