Action for a Poverty Reduction Strategy

Community pressure has pushed the government to commit to a poverty reduction strategy. Now we need community action to ensure that it’s a strong plan with legislated targets and timelines. You can be a part of this effort to make BC’s government take action against poverty.

The provincial government’s poverty reduction consultations and community meetings have officially closed. 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.

The government is compiling a full list of notes from their community meetings, and submissions from organizations and small group discussion hosts here.
