The provincial government's Community Meetings kick off tomorrow to get your ideas about what should... be included in the Poverty Reduction Strategy. Your community pressure has pushed the government to this stage, now we need continued community action to ensure that they implement a strong plan with legislated targets and timelines.

We’ve put together a guide sharing the key messages and policies to highlight in the consultations. You can also see a summary on our one-page poster.

We will share details about these community meetings on our website as soon as we have them. You can also visit the government’s site for the most up to date times and locations.

Is your community not on the list? Do you know groups of people experiencing poverty who can't attend the community meetings? 

The government is also offering the opportunity for non-profit organizations in BC to apply for support of up to $2500 to host their own small group discussion targeted towards:

1)    specific groups of people experiencing poverty in a variety of circumstances that face barriers to attending community meetings or providing input in other ways (e.g. youth, newcomers, on-reserve) and / or

2)    those living in rural and remote communities that are not included in the over 20 community meetings that are being held across BC.

The funding can be used to cover costs of organizing the session, ensuring participants can attend, and submitting the results to BC’s poverty reduction strategy.
