Sault Ste. Marie Poverty Reduction Round Table: Strategic Action Plan

PCH, Ontario, Local, PRS

In Sault Ste. Marie numerous organizations have been working to reduce the impact of poverty on the health and well-being of the city’s citizens, and have undertaken numerous consultations and studies in recent years to address this complex issue.  The Sault Ste. Marie Report on Homelessness, the United Way of Sault Ste. Marie and District’s “Action for Community Change” and the “Downtown Dialogue and Action” all engaged community members, service providers and community leaders in addressing some of the challenges inherent in addressing the impacts of poverty.  One outcome of these various pieces of research was the formation of a Poverty Roundtable in the spring of 2015.
