Poverty Reduction Strategy

The NLASW was pleased to have the opportunity to engage in a collaborative dialogue with provincial stakeholders as part of the Poverty Reduction Summit hosted by the Community Sector Council on March 1, 2017.  This event included a presentation by Mr. Nick Whelan, MP (St. John’s East), detailing the Federal Government initiative to develop a Canadian Poverty Reduction Strategy.  The Federal Government is currently seeking feedback to inform the development of this strategy. Additional information is available at  https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/campaigns/poverty-reduction.html.
