Canada Without Poverty 50th Anniversary!
Lived Experience Community 2030
We will only achieve the Sustainable Development Goals through meaningful community engagement that prioritizes human rights and equity. Our Lived Experience Community 2030 project brings together voices from across the country to redefine consultation and centre communities in the decision-making process.
Canada Without Poverty seeks to eradicate poverty in Canada for the benefit of all by educating Canadians about the human and financial cost of poverty, and by identifying public policy solutions.
Our vision is for a Canada without poverty. This vision will be reached through collaboration among governments, businesses and civil society. Policies, laws and programs will ensure sufficient income and social supports for everyone. Canada will have built a strong social foundation, such that everyone can pursue opportunities for achievement and fulfillment, embrace the responsibilities of citizenship and community opportunities, and live with a sense of dignity.
We value conducting ourselves with humility, honour and integrity. We value being caring, inclusive and respectful of others, and being responsible and accountable for our decisions and actions.
