The 2021 PGI Season is here!

The Peter Gzowski Foundation for Literacy is happy to announce that its 2021 PGI season will take place.

No matter the venue, all PGI partners are mindful that people’s safety comes first during the pandemic. Some PGI partners are mounting their own online, virtual events. Other PGI events may be in person in those provinces and territories with reduced restrictions. A number of PGIs are joining together to produce a National Virtual Event to be held on a date of their choice throughout the year.

PGIs remain committed to raising awareness about literacy and helping to support literacy programs across the country.

What We Do

Nowhere else in Canada will you find fundraising events like the PGIs. Groups of highly motivated local volunteers supported by well- known Canadian writers, poets, musicians and other celebrities coming together to raise funds for literacy. With at least one PGI in every province and territory, the reach of the PGIs’ far exceeds that of any other literacy fundraising event in Canada. Every dollar raised at both the national and local level is directed to literacy programs in the communities in which the tournaments and fundraising events take place.
