Event description

Description

Tell the federal government how to reduce poverty in Canada!

The Ottawa Poverty Reduction Network needs your input The feds are developing a Poverty Reduction Strategy and is offering in-person consultations in select communities across the country in collaboration with local community partners of Vibrant Communities - Cities Reducing Poverty.

What would make a difference? What do we need to improve? What do we need to get rid of? We're holding two sessions on May 31st to get your opinion. Both sessions are the same so you only need to attend one and the evening session has limited space so please come in the afternoon if you can.

If you want to do some prep, take a look at the Dignity for All National Anti-Poverty Plan which will give you some background and ideas. It's at: https://dignityforall.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/DignityForAll_Report.pdf.

This event is free but we will accept donations of bus tickets and other support. As we get more bus tickets, the number of "Tickets with bus fare" will increase. Bus tickets for participants will be available at the event if requested in advance - please choose the ticket that includes bus fare. The #18 bus stops outside the Centre.

There is parking behind the Centre and on surrounding streets.

A report will be provided to all participants and the federal government following the event.
