Have Your Say on How Manitoba Can Reduce Poverty Now

March 15, 2018

Online Survey Launched for Poverty Reduction Strategy

Minister of Families, Scott Fielding, and Minister of Education & Training, Ian Wishart, announced the launch of an online survey to continue the Province’s poverty reduction strategy consultations. 

This survey was developed using information collected from in-person consultations that began in November 2017. It includes options for feedback if you are completing the survey as a person living in low-income, a resident of Manitoba, on behalf of an organization with a general interest in poverty reduction, or on behalf of an organization working directly with individuals living in poverty. 

The Province hopes to capture a diversity of experiences through this format, which will help them move forward on developing a new poverty reduction strategy. This online survey will remain open until March 23, 2018.  You can access the survey here.

Manitobans can also still send written submissions (such as position papers, letters, etc.) to or by mail to:

Poverty Reduction Strategy
Manitoba Families
Poverty Reduction Strategy Team
400 – 352 Donald Street
Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3B 2H8

The written submission deadline has been extended to March 23, 2018.

CCEDNet Manitoba has already submitted to this consultation process, supporting the recommendations of our members and partners especially through MPHM, Barrier Free Manitoba, Right to Housing, and the Child Care Coalition of Manitoba but the Provincial government also wants to hear from individuals, especially those with lived experience of poverty. Check out our submission, feel free to use any portion of it in your responses, and share this opportunity with your colleagues and community members!
