WEBINAR | The End of Working Poverty: Employer Strategies

Webinars and Videos, Poverty Reduction, Cities Reducing Poverty

Across the country, over a million families struggle to make ends meet despite working one, two or sometimes even three jobs and have to choose between putting food on the table and paying electrical bills. Now more than ever, it is critical we find a solution that works for all Canadians.

In this webinar, Helmi Ansari and Alexander Ralph highlighted strategies that employers can undertake to help end working poverty. They explored topics like living wage and social procurement, what it means to be a living wage employer as a private business and as a municipality, creating benefits within the community, and their advocacy for decent work in Canada.

This webinar is part of a series on Ending Working Poverty. Watch the first instalment in the Ending Working Poverty series.
