Ontario Campaign 2000 builds on the deep public concern about child and family poverty issues by engaging local communities to examine child poverty and children’s well-being through presentations, displays, forums and our publications. Campaign 2000 also encourages communities to take action and advocate for the advance of doable public policy solutions in regards to income, services, housing, and labour market security for families and children.

Mother’s and Caregivers Send Recommendations to Party Leaders

On May 9, 2014 Ontario Campaign 2000, Family Service Toronto and the Income Security Advocacy Centre partnered with Ryerson University’s School of Social Work, CAW-Sam Gindin Chair in Social Justice and Democracy and the Ryerson Students’ Union to host our third annual Mother’s Day Breakfast. Each year, the breakfast honours the advocacy work of mothers and caregivers living in low income.This year’s event was planned by a dedicated committee of mothers and the program included performances by the very talented Domanique Grant, inspiring speeches from peer advocates and a recognition of FST’s 100th year providing services and fighting poverty.

Participants were asked to brainstorm ways the Ontario Government could improve the lives of Mothers and Caregivers in Ontario. The women came up with 35 good ideas which were compiled into a list and have been sent to provincial party leaders Andrea Horwath, Tim Hudak, Mike Schreiner and Kathleen Wynne
