Speaker Series

Mayor Ted Clugston, of Medicine Hat, Alberta, is visiting BC to share with us his experience of becoming a strong advocate for a Housing First approach to tackle homelessness in his town. Mayor Clugston will be in Vancouver and Abbotsford from April 28-29, 2015, and you can also participate on a province-wide webinar, so there’s plenty of opportunities to hear his story and connect with the issue.

Dr. Gary Bloch’s speaking tour of BC in September 2014 was the first of our Poverty Free BC Speaker Series. Dr. Bloch has a simple cure for the health problems ailing low-income British Columbians: increase their income. That’s the message that Dr. Bloch, a family physician with St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, and chair of the Ontario College of Family Physicians’ Committee on Poverty and Health, brought to Vancouver on September 22-23, 2014.
