About the project

AlphaNumerique aims to facilitate and encourage participation in the digital economy among the most affected groups by digital gaps.

The main objective is to give them the opportunity to acquire basic digital literacy skills to browse our digital society better.

  • The dematerialization of public services: many services are mainly offered on the Web, such as banking or financial transactions, booking an appointment, job-hunting or information retrieval, online shopping, etc.
  • Digital exclusion: This dematerialization of services, whether public or private, causes the exclusion of part of the population that does not have access to digital tools or does not have the confidence and the essential skills to use them.

     

AlphaNumerique’s Multiple Benefits

For citizens

Developing digital literacy skills and becoming conscious of its issues allows citizens to increase their chances of participating in and benefiting from the digital economy. More than half (54%)* of non-Internet users believe that specialized support in public places could promote their use of the Internet. In this context, activities designed by AlphaNumerique and promoted by its partners provide a concrete response to reduce the digital exclusion phenomenon, particularly among people who find themselves socially, economically or geographically excluded or disadvantaged.

For libraries and organizations*

Thanks to its wide range of training sessions, AlphaNumerique allows public libraries and organizations staff to acquire key skills and improve themselves to better support their audiences who use digital tools. Properly equipped, they will have more confidence in their abilities and can provide citizens with optimal guidance when it comes to using digital tools. These new skills also provide an opportunity for public libraries and organizations to innovate and position themselves as digital inclusion poles known among the community.

*Staff training is only offered in French.

AlphaNumerique allows citizens to:

  • Increase their skills and autonomy to perform various tasks;
  • Develop a digital culture that promotes the proper use of digital tools and good practices related to online browsing;
  • Access essential services and assert their rights;
  • Have a better knowledge of the risks present online, whether they are personal, financial and others;
  • Increase their professional integration by increasing their value in the labour market;
  • Build ties, show solidarity to other users, and avoid social exclusion.
 
AlphaNumerique is part of Canada’s digital strategic
plan and specifically part of the Digital literacy exchange program launched by Innovation, Science and Economic Development.

 

Developed by Bibliopresto in collaboration with Techno Culture Club, AlphaNumerique also benefits from close partnerships with the Association des bibliothèques publiques du Québec (Quebec Public Library Association), the Réseau BIBLIO du Québec and the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec.
