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.

Burnaby – Low Wage Poverty Group Discussion

March 19 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Cost of living in BC is skyrocketing, but wages are not following suit. If you’re working and still struggling to make ends meet, we want to hear from you.

Join us for a discussion to share your experiences and ideas to impact government efforts to fight poverty. Your contributions will help inform the development of BC’s first Poverty Reduction Strategy.
