Topic: The July BC Communities Reducing Poverty (BC CoP) call will bring together BC Cities Reducing Poverty members, BC CoP learners, and UBCM Poverty Reduction Planning and Action Program grant recipients. It will provide roundtable space for attendees to provide an overview of their grant, voice any challenges they foresee in implementing it in the face of COVID-19, and connect to other communities engaged in similar projects. Tamarack will provide an update on supports available (e.g. an online bi-monthly expert coaching series, peer/group learning opportunities, and helpful resources and guides for Stream 1 recipients that will be developing community plans).
The BC CoP is a committed group of individuals with a common desire to learn from each other, to enable professional self- development, and to build capacities of their local poverty reduction initiatives. The group comes together on a bi-monthly basis to share information, experiences and best practices, strengthen collaboration, and better respond to poverty-related issues in their communities.

By engaging in facilitated conversations with your peers, you will uncover new approaches to problems, build your professional skill set, access new ideas and contribute to the transfer of best practices.
The purpose of the BC CoP is to create a space and structured opportunity for BC CoP members to connect, collaborate, and share experiences, best practices and lessons learned pertaining to community-based poverty reduction in BC. Our group is committed to:
