Community pressure has pushed the government to commit to a poverty reduction strategy and they are currently organizing meetings across the province. Now we need community action to ensure that it’s a strong plan with legislated targets and timelines.

We’ve put together a guide sharing the key messages and policies to highlight in the consultations. You can also see a summary on our one-page poster.

Hudson Hope – Métis Poverty Reduction Engagement Session

March 17

BC has the highest population of poverty in Canada… poverty is a violation of our human dignity. MNBC is looking to our Métis people to participate and share in this very important engagement session on how to reduce poverty in our province. Your input matters. Join us, and help create a poverty reduction strategy for BC.
These sessions are FREE and coming very soon to your community. Please RSVP Gail Parenteau gparenteau@mnbc.ca or call 1-800-940-1150.
