"On 13 June 2016, the House of Commons Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities (hereafter referred to as “the Committee” or “HUMA”) adopted a motion to undertake a study of poverty reduction strategies in Canada. The motion stipulates that the study focus on four specific areas of intervention: federal income support and savings programs; the promotion of employment, education and training; housing support; and broader community initiatives. The motion also requires that special attention be paid to vulnerable communities; gender differences; existing poverty reduction strategies in Canada; as well as innovative approaches to reducing poverty through collaboration between the various levels of government, social innovation, private sector and non-profit initiatives, and social financing"--p. 1.
