Abstract: The research is an attempt to analyze the issues of adult literacy and essential skills (LES) development in the context of corporate education in Canada. Literature review of official documents and scientific works revealed the importance of functional literacy development which encompasses literacy in its traditional understanding and other skills essential for the sustainable development of an individual, company, nation, and mankind. The important role of the private sector in this respect is undisputable. Since Canada is one of the most developed countries in the world, its experience in the area of adult LES development is assumed to be an exemplar for other countries. Because of this, the paper outlines the state of adult LES promotion and enhancement in Canada focusing on the role of the private sector in the process. Digital literacy is regarded as one of the essential skills of the 21st century, thus the experience of Canada in technical upskilling of the working population is considered as well. The research reveals that increasing investment into employees’ learning is beneficial for an individual and a company alike. Therefore, significant attention is paid to the experience of Canadian companies in this area. Cooperation of various stakeholders is crucial for addressing the issue of low levels of literacy and essential skills, thus, the paper dwells on some national programs and local initiatives facilitating cooperation between public and private sectors for advancing the literacy level of working adults in Canada. The results of the research wrap up with one of the effective approaches to developing LES training in the corporate context as recommended in the scope of Advancing Workplace Learning, a wide-scale national project dedicated to various aspects of corporate L&D in Canada.
