Event Details: 
For the first time, the federal government is ready to develop a national poverty reduction strategy. This is your chance to let them know what you think should be in the strategy. What would make a difference in our community? What do we need to improve? 

You can do this in two ways:

  • Visit Dignity for All to fill out an on-line form. It only takes a few minutes.The more people who complete it, the more the federal government will know this is a priority.
  • Attend one of two consultations sessions being organized by Ottawa Poverty Reduction Network. Join your voice with 30 communities across Canada holding such consultations.

May 31 st – 1 to 4 PM OR 6:30 – 9:30 PM. The two events are the same, so only attend one. The evening session has limited space, please join in the afternoon session if you can. Register for a session here!

This event is free. Bus tickets for participants will be available at the event if requested in advance - please choose the ticket that includes bus fare. The #18 bus comes to the Centre from St Laurent Station and the Rideau Centre and stops right outside on Quill at Queen Mary. There is parking behind the Centre and on surrounding streets.

A report will be provided to all participants and the federal government following the event.

If you want to do some prep, take a look at the Dignity for All National Anti-Poverty Plan which will give you some background and ideas.
