2012 Provincial Budget Analysis

August 2012

This budget analysis compared First Call’s recommendations to the province’s Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services and the committee’s recommendations relating to child and youth issues, as published in First Call’s Report on the Budget 2012 Consultations – with the actual budget commitments made by the province in 2012.

In conclusion, First Call called on the Select Standing Committee to recommend that BC adopt a comprehensive poverty reduction plan, one with legislated timelines and targets for the reduction of poverty and homelessness.
