Consultations across Canada to create a national poverty reduction strategy


The Government of Canada has launched an online and in-person consultation process until June 2017 to engage with Canadians on key issues related to poverty.

You can share your feedback by:

  • taking part in the online discussion forum
  • filling out a survey
  • posting a photo, video or written story to the Share Your Stories page
  • talking about how you’re contributing to the discussion using #ReducePoverty on Twitter (@SocDevSoc) and Instagram (@esdc-edsc)
  • encouraging your friends to get involved

The government has also developed a toolkit to host your own event in your school, workplace or community to help #ReducePoverty in Canada.
