Poverty Reduction Strategy

You are invited to participate in small group discussions to contribute ideas and solutions to help the BC government develop the Poverty Reduction Strategy.

Poverty-Reducation-Consultation-graphicThe discussions will focus on two key questions:
• What are the issues facing you and people living in poverty right now?
• What ideas do you have that would help you and others out of poverty?

The Community Meeting on Salt Spring Island will be:
Date: Thursday March 15 Location: Lions Hall – 103 Bonnet Ave, Salt Spring Island Time: Doors open at 12 noon.

Everyone is welcome to have a hot meal together, which will be provided. The discussion will start at 1:00pm.

Help is available with transportation, childcare or other needs. If you are coming from another Gulf Island, we can also help with costs. Please contact us in advance.

Restorative-Justice-grahicThe meeting will be facilitated using a “community circle” format, which means that everyone will get a chance to participate equally, in a non-formal way. You don’t have to be an expert to have your opinions heard, so come on out.
Here is a link to a one-page summary of some of the major issues impacting poverty in BC.
