Frontier College

Frontier College (French: Collège Frontière) is a Canadian literacy organization established in 1899 by Alfred Fitzpatrick. Founded as the Reading Camp Association,[1] Frontier College aims to improve literacy levels in Canada by providing education to those who seek assistance with their learning and have been overlooked or left behind by the formal educational system. Frontier College runs a myriad of English-language and French-language literacy programs for children, youth and adults in many places across Canada such as community centres, shelters, farms and prisons. It was renamed Frontier College in 1919.[1] Since 1986, its national headquarters has been located at Gzowski House (named for the celebrated Canadian journalist, the late Peter Gzowski) at 35 Jackes Avenue in Toronto, Ontario.
