Senator Art Eggleton will speak and engage with forum participants and a panel of experts on issues concerning the poor. His range of topics will include among others, his views on Guaranteed (basic) income and the impact and role of advocacy organizations in shaping public policy. We hope to have MPPs talk to us from their political platforms on issues concerning poverty in Ontario. After lunch, we will continue to deliberate on and debrief the morning session in addition to being updated on current advocacy initiatives around housing and decent work.
The $45 registration fee ($25 for students) includes lunch. Forum organized by Ontario's interfaith anti-poverty coalition, ISARC (Interfaith Social Assistance Reform Coalition).
