Evaluating Community Impact, Publications, Vibrant Communities, Poverty Reduction, Cities Reducing Poverty

PUBLICATION | Incomes are an important determinant of well-being and one of the more measureable aspects of poverty. Data can tell us how poverty affects groups of people differently, and how poverty is changing among and within them. This publication discusses how the forthcoming federal poverty reduction strategy must be rooted in evidence, must aim to put an end to widening income inequality, and must reflect the complexity of poverty by involving the many actors that influence and are affected by it.

Vibrant Communities

By Vibrant Communities

Vibrant Communities is one of Tamarack's practice areas, and it has a specific focus on cities reducing poverty. A Vibrant Community can be created once the human, social and economic cost of poverty are significantly reduced. Together, these cities/regions aspire to reduce poverty in 100 cities.
