CASE STUDY | Halton Poverty Roundtable

Case Studies, Cities Reducing Poverty, Ontario

Located in southern Ontario and part of the Greater Toronto Area, Halton Region is known as an affluent community and desirable place to live. However, poverty in the area is significant, growing and largely hidden. Historically, an understanding of poverty and the lives of those who live in poverty in Halton has been limited. It was not until 2011 that the community coalesced around a coherent strategy led by the Halton Poverty Roundtable (HPRT) to combat systemic poverty, and while challenges remain, the community moves forward today with a deepening commitment and greater degree of collaboration.
