WEBINAR | The End of Working Poverty: Effective Public Policy

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, we debated various public policies that are critical to ending working poverty in Canada. We discussed tackling working poverty along a spectrum of “shallow” to “deep” poverty, adapting our income security system to address realities of the new labour market, and the importance of municipal and provincial policy alignment.

This webinar is part of a series on Ending Working Poverty.
