Living Wage for Families Campaign Submission for Budget 2020

The Living Wage for Families Campaign participated in the BC government’s public consultation for the 2020 Budget. Our submission has eight recommendations, focused in three areas: higher wages and income supports that meet the cost of living, expanded affordable child care, and more investment in high-expense areas for all family types including those without children.

While the provincial government has taken a number of actions in recent years to reduce poverty, more can be done to ensure all British Columbians have a good quality of life. Our recommendations in this consultation highlight several ways to build upon these successes in Budget 2020.
