The ABC Plan

After years of community pressure, the provincial government unanimously passed the Poverty Reduction Strategy Act (Bill 39). The Act is the foundation for the first ever poverty reduction plan for BC. Now we need community action to ensure an accountable, bold and comprehensive plan. You can be a part of this effort to make BC’s government take action against poverty.

We’ve told them the urgent needs, and we expect action. We will continue to raise our collective voice loud and clear highlighting the pillars of a strong, comprehensive poverty reduction plan.

Visit to take action.
