Clear Language and Design (CLAD)

  • CLAD is a public education program of CCL&D geared toward raising public awareness around the impact of inaccessible language on the population in general, but more specifically on people with low literacy skills. 
  • Through this service CLAD continues to work with public and private sector organizations (including pharmaceutical companies, the City of Toronto, Ministry of Health & Long-term Care, just to name a few) to help make their materials more accessible to their own staff and the general public.
  • CLAD provides editing, writing, training, and consulting on a fee for service basis.
