Join Dan Meades, provincial co-ordinator for the Transition House Association of Newfoundland and Labrador, for a presentation on the success of Newfoundland and Labrador’s poverty reduction strategy. In 2006, Newfoundland and Labrador became the second Canadian province to introduce a formal action plan to reduce poverty. Having shared one of the worst poverty rates in Canada with BC, they have reduced their poverty rate and food insecurity significantly through their poverty reduction plan. BC still has one of the highest poverty rates and is now the only province without a poverty reduction plan.

Come and learn about Newfoundland and Labrador’s success in reducing poverty and how to make this possible in BC.

M’Girl will perform, and Iglika Ivanova of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives and Chantille Viaud of Gordon Neighbourhood House will highlight the cost of poverty in BC and how we could achieve justice for all through a poverty reduction plan for BC.

For years Dan was the Executive Director of Vibrant Communities Calgary before moving back to his home of St. John’s Newfoundland where Dan currently serves as Provincial Coordinator for the Transition House Association of Newfoundland and Labrador, an organization that focuses on safe shelter for women and their children experiencing violence.
