What does success look like in a BC Poverty Reduction Strategy?  What do you think are the best ways to reduce poverty in BC?  What can we do as a province, a community, or as individuals to reduce poverty and contribute to economic and social inclusion?

British Columbians are invited to come and talk about how poverty can be reduced in the province. Ideas shared at the in-person community meetings will help inform the Poverty Reduction Strategy.

Supports are available to help you participate, including transportation, child care, disability and health supports, as well as secure storage for belongings.
