Towards a Canadian Poverty Reduction Strategy: Community Conversation

The Government of Canada is committed to developing a Poverty Reduction Strategy to reduce poverty and improve the economic wellbeing of all Canadians.

I want to hear your ideas in order to provide input to the Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, and so I can better represent you in Ottawa.

Share your experiences and ideas on these questions:

  • How can the Government of Canada align its Poverty Reduction Strategy so that it supports existing efforts by provinces, territories, municipalities and communities?
  • What are some initiatives/innovations in Canada or elsewhere that other governments, community organizations, academia, or businesses have introduced or proposed to effectively reduce poverty?
  • How can the Government encourage an on-going dialogue with other levels of government, community organizations, academia and businesses on its poverty reduction efforts?
