Frontier College

Frontier College logo

Mission Statement: Frontier College is a national charitable literacy organization. We believe literacy is a right. We work with volunteers and community partners to give people the skills and confidence they need to reach their potential and contribute to society.

Vision Statement: To be a leading and results-driven literacy service partner.

Established in 1899 by teacher Alfred Fitzpatrick and a group combined of university students & faculty, Frontier College is Canada's original literacy organization. The initial purpose of the organization was to send trained Teachers-Labourers to live, work and teach in isolated “frontier” settlements, like mines, logging camps and railway lines.  Today the nation-wide non-profit’s volunteers and community partners focuses on Canada’s “new frontiers” – inner city schools & streets, public housing areas, farm communities, prisons and reserves.
