MCFD Minister Cadieux Responds to 2015 BC Child Poverty Report Card Letter


December 2015

BC Minister of Children and Family Development Stephanie Cadieux responds on behalf of Premier Christy Clark to First Call’s November 2015 letter urging the government to adopt the recommendations outlined in the 2015 BC Child Poverty Report Card.

The province maintains that “a strong economy is the best way to lift families out of poverty” and that the child poverty rate declined 43% between 2003 and 2011.
