In this webinar recording, members of the National Advisory Council on Poverty converse with Vibrant Communities Calgary’s Policy and Research Specialist, Lee Stevens, to discuss what they heard in their pan-Canadian tour talking to people from across the country.
The speakers on this panel explore:
- what they’ve learned about the state of poverty in Canada;
- the widening inequality gap; and
- why the five recommendations put forward in their new report, Understanding Systems: The 2021 report of the National Advisory Council on Poverty, are the most high-impact as we look forward to a just COVID-19 recovery for all.
