Towards a poverty reduction strategy : discussion paper.: Em20-53/2016E-PDF

“Governments at all levels have made efforts to reduce poverty. This includes the development of several poverty reduction strategies already in place across Canada’s provinces, territories and municipalities. At the federal level, the Government has made several recent announcements on initiatives that will support its poverty reduction efforts. The Government of Canada is seeking views on how to build on and align with these existing efforts. Developing a Canadian Poverty Reduction Strategy also presents an opportunity for government to examine its programs to see if they can be strengthened to address the causes of poverty in Canada“--P. 4.
