Since you are in Toronto, Ontario, I heartily recommend a Power & Sail Squadron, during winter. We learned everything we needed to know about reading and working with paper charts in their piloting course (or whatever it is now called). It will teach you so much, with good materials and in-class practice!

Good luck
