Second Report Tabled in Parliament: Understanding Systems: The 2021 Report of the National Advisory Council on Poverty

As part of their engagement, the Council met with over 600 individuals from across the country in over 20 conversations on issues that matter to those living in poverty. Using these insights, the Council made recommendations around five key areas to: advance Indigenous prosperity; improve data disaggregation; streamline benefits and services; and, strengthen and enhance existing supports.

Recommendations aim to reduce inequity. They also aim at addressing issues of systemic racism, discrimination and colonialism, to ensure that everyone has equal access to benefits, resources and opportunities. They aim at ensuring that people are treated equitably and with dignity when accessing important benefits and services. Finally, they aim at ensuring that everyone has the resources they need to thriveSee Understanding Systems: The 2021 Report of the National Advisory Council on Poverty
