Dignity for All: The Campaign for a Poverty-Free Canada was founded by Canada Without Poverty and Citizens for Public Justice in 2009. Canada Without Poverty is the new public name of the National Anti-Poverty Organization.
Founded in 1971, Canada Without Poverty (formally the National Anti-Poverty Organization) is an incorporated, not-for-profit, non-partisan, member-based organization dedicated to the eradication of poverty in Canada.
Citizens for Public Justice is a national organization of members inspired by faith to act for justice in Canada by shaping key public policy debates through research and analysis, publishing and public dialogue.
We believe that the best way to move towards federal action on poverty, equality and social security is for many partners to work together, mobilizing the support and engagement of organizations, communities of interest and individuals across the country.
