New teaching resource on Income Disparity in Hamilton

 

 


Hamilton Public Health Services along with Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board and Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board and the Hamilton Roundtable for Poverty Reduction are very pleased to make available: “Learning About Income Disparity in Hamilton, Ontario” for use in Hamilton classrooms. This project would not have been possible without all of the project partners involved n the creation of this unique teaching tool.

We hope this resource will raise awareness amongst Hamilton students so that over time, a shift in attitudes about poverty and income disparity will have a positive effect on all of Hamilton’s citizens.
