The Committee for the Development of Highly Qualified Personnel (HQPC) has three goals:

  • to improve the national capacity to undertake leading edge language and literacy research
  • to facilitate transfer of knowledge to service delivery specialists
  • to develop and deliver efficient, innovative, interdisciplinary training

To increase the number of outstanding researchers, able to conduct research critical to solving problems of language and literacy deficiencies in Canada, HQPC develops and supports programs for:

  • early recruitment and effective mentorship of undergraduate and graduate students
  • multi-disciplinary research collaborations and laboratory rotations
  • research internships in community settings
  • training at Core Facilities
  • student participation and activism in Network achievements

To increase the transfer of knowledge between laboratory and service delivery, HQPC develops and supports programs for:

  • public lectures and site visits
  • courses and workshops for educators and health care personnel
  • secondments and co-op training for public and private sector personnel
  • the development of protocols for identification of early language and literacy risk factors
  • investments in federal, provincial, and private training partnerships
  • an advisory panel of partners and stakeholders

In this way, The Canadian Language and Literacy Research Network will deliver expertise and evidence-based practice to the public and private sector, thereby increasing the social, economic, and educational opportunities of all Canadians.
