Poverty Reduction Strategy Consultation
April 26, 2017
OTTAWA – Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, is encouraging residents to participate in a nation-wide consultation process to support the development of Canada’s Poverty Reduction Strategy, which will be aimed at reducing poverty and improving the economic well-being of all Canadians so they have a fair chance to succeed.
In order to support the development of the Strategy, the government launched online and in-person consultations with Canadians to discuss key issues related to poverty. All Canadians are invited to participate in the online consultation, which will run until June 2017. The consultation can be found at: esdc-consultations.canada.ca/poverty-reduction-strategy.
“To address such an issue as complex as poverty, all levels of government, as well as community and not-for-profit organizations, need to work together. By participating, residents of Yellowhead will have the opportunity to have their say on reducing poverty, including discussion forums and online town halls,” concluded MP Eglinski.
