Poverty Is Not Inevitable

BC is one of the last provinces left without a poverty reduction plan.

All but 2 provinces in Canada either have poverty reduction plans or are in the process of adopting them, and many are already seeing success. They’re saving lives and money by tackling the issue of poverty head-on. In many places, it was community pressure that convinced the government to take action, and then unanimous government support that provided the commitment to make a big difference in people’s lives.
