Campaign 2000’s Public Forums: Shaping Canada’s First Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS)

Campaign 2000 and partners have called for a federal anti-poverty strategy for decades. Now, the federal government is in the process of developing a federal Poverty Reduction Strategy but the public consultation phase will end June 30.

To ensure community voices are heard within the PRS consultations, on June 12 the Campaign 2000 national network is holding a series of public forums across the country. Forums will take place in British Columbia, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Toronto and Charlottetown. We will connect to speakers from other provinces online to bring our national movement for poverty eradication together.

Panel – Activities – Discussion

Join Campaign 2000 and our partners for an evening of open and engaging discussions to shape Canada’s first Poverty Reduction Strategy. The priorities of people living in poverty and their allies must be heard by government. Please come and make your voice heard loud and clear. Share your insights to ensure the strategy reflects the urgent concerns of Canadians living in poverty and those committed to eradicating it.
