The November Parliamentary Committee report Federal Poverty Reduction Plan: Working in Partnership Towards Reducing Poverty in Canada calls for the federal government to immediately commit to a federal action plan to reduce poverty in Canada. If implemented, it could change the face of poverty in Canada.
Unfortunately, previous reports on poverty have sat on the shelf. The national campaigns Make Poverty History and Dignity for All are encouraging Canadians to send a message to Human Resources Minister Diane Finley and their local MP, urging the government to respond positively to the recommendations in the report.
Make Poverty History’s campaign page makes it easy to send a message. Take action now to tell the government that we need immediate action to end poverty in Canada.
