What’s next? How do we Address Poverty in Canada

Amidst growing public concern about inequality, how can we work together to address this issue for those who feel its effects most, the poorest 10% of Canadians? The evidence and research is in. What sort of meaningful action is needed now at the federal level?

On Monday, December 5th from 5:30-7 p.m., the Dignity for All campaign for a poverty-free Canada is hosting “What’s next? How do we Address Poverty in Canada” at the Booth Building, Room 2-2, 165 Sparks Street. Please join us for a lively and engaging conversation on where we go from here on the poverty front in light of the recent federal government reports on the issue: the Senate’s In from the Margins report (2009), the House Committee’s Federal Poverty Reduction Plan (2010), and the National Council of Welfare’s The Dollars and Sense of Solving Poverty (2011). Featuring a panel of MPs, a person with lived experience of poverty, and a representative from Dignity for All, there will be opportunities to hear perspectives, share ideas, and ask questions about what next steps are needed to address poverty in Canada.

Please RSVP by November 29, 2011 to Kizzy Paris at Canada Without Poverty: kizzy@cwp-csp.ca, or 613-789-0096
We hope you are able to attend.

This event is co-sponsored by MP Jean Crowder and MP Rodger Cuzner.
