The Harris Institute of Speed Reading is owned and operated in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada by Steve Harris, a professional speed reading instructor since 1981.

Our work is principally with people in business, government, universities and high schools. Our technique helps with reading any kind of material in any language - law, science, technical, literature, management, etc.

We teach a one-day session, usually 9 AM to 4 PM, taught in-person. Individuals can sign up for courses we organize in Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal, or we can teach groups of up to 25 persons at any location. We travel anywhere - our prices are moderate.

The Harris technique will enable you to read the easiest or the most difficult texts more quickly, while gaining the comprehension and appreciation you need and the enjoyment you want.

  • Read 50 - 150% faster without loss of comprehension with our program.
