Poverty Reduction Strategy Consultations

Learn more about the Government of Canada’s Consultation Process for a Canadian Poverty Reduction Strategy.

On February 13th, Minister Jean-Yves Duclos launched a consultation process for the Canadian Poverty Reduction Strategy. Dignity for All is encouraged to see that the federal government is moving forward in its commitment to develop a national anti-poverty strategy. We want to make sure these consultations are accessible and that both individuals and civil society organizations have a say in how the strategy is shaped.

  1. I’m not sure how to join this “live” townhall – so for what it’s worth – any national effort, any strategy, any plan, any policy or any program developed to deal with poverty and its reduction or elimination – has to take a differentiated approach. It must acknowledge and specifically address the unique and different circumstances and lived realities of each of the historically disadvantaged and systematically marginalized groups in Canada – First Peoples, peoples of colour, single mothers, persons with (dis)abilities, LGBTQ community members, single adults, and youth – and the intersections of these ! So any federal initiative need track each of these groups over time – with appropriate data capture tools, techniques and templates – in order to determine and best ensure that all groups of people are in fact benefiting from any and all of the interventions – and doing do equitably !!
