Action on Poverty Profiles


Share

A new series of profiles on the reality of poverty in Halton’s electoral ridings titled “Action on Poverty” from Community Development Halton. The reports are part of a larger series of 53 profiles, one for each riding in the GTA and Hamilton coordinated by the Social Planning Network of Ontario.

Each profile contains facts and figures about poverty and challenges facing residents in each of the ridings. They identify how the work of community groups, service providers and advocacy groups in communities across the Golden Horseshoe are coming together to challenge poverty. These stories call attention to the wide range of anti-poverty initiatives that are taking place within each community and across Ontario.
