Provincial Poverty Reduction Strategy – the next 5 years

Release of a new 5-year Provincial Poverty Plan

Last month the Provincial Government released its new 5 year poverty plan.  The plan was delayed by the recent election, but we look forward to working with the Government to move many of the initiatives identified forward.  We’ll also need to continue to highlight and vigorously encourage focus on some areas that weren’t as pronounced in the plan – particularly around social assistance reform.  Howard recently penned an editorial on behalf of the Spectator’s editorial board which I think offers a good analysis of some of the plan’s hits and misses:       http://www.thespec.com/opinion-story/4834291-the-spectator-s-view-wynne-s-poverty-strategy-is-a-mixed-bag/
