Family Literacy Day (FamilyLiteracyDay.ca) is a national campaign created by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1999. It is held annually on January 27 to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family.

ABC Life Literacy Canada is encouraging families to "Learn at play, every day." Engaging in literacy activities as a family improves a child’s skills and also helps adults keep their skills sharp.
