Research Report: Making Ends Meet
Making Ends Meet – Low Wage Work, Poverty and Healthy Communities in Vancouver is a peer-led participatory action research project that aimed to gather data about the experiences of Vancouver parents who are living in poverty while working and raising children.
Research participants identified child care deficits, unaffordable housing, and inadequate income as the key issues that keep Vancouver families with children living in poverty. These three problems are at the core of every other issue that arises for low-income Vancouver families.
