The National Advisory Council on Poverty (the Council) invites you to participate in a discussion on how poverty in Canada is changing.

The National Advisory Council on Poverty (the Council) invites you to participate in a discussion on how poverty in Canada is changing.

The Council provides advice to the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development on poverty reduction. Before the Council can advise the Minister, it hosts conversations with people who have lived and/or are living in poverty and stakeholders (e.g., front line service providers, academics, and others who work to address poverty in Canada). These discussions will help the Council to learn about their experiences and seek their views on what works and what else could be done to reduce poverty. These insights will help inform the Council’s fifth annual report on the Government’s progress, including recommendations for further action to reduce poverty in Canada.

The Council is hosting four virtual sessions. Each session will be limited to 100 participants and participation will be determined on a first come, first serve basis.

Please find below the dates, times, and topics for these discussions:
