House of Commons to hold hearings on Income Inequality in Canada
Category: National Poverty Plan
The House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance will be holding hearings on Income Inequality in Canada. The hearings come at a time when many observers agree the income gap between the lowest income earners and Canada’s most affluent residents is growing. According to the Conference Board of Canada, “Canada isn’t living up to its potential or its reputation when it comes to societal issues like poverty, government and inequality”.
The Hamilton Roundtable for Poverty Reduction has prepared a brief: Hamilton Roundtable submission to FINA to the Standing Committee on Finance outlining key indicators of inequality within our community along with recommendations to reduce Hamilton and Canada’s inequality gap.
