Poverty Reduction - Living Wage Summit

The Living Wage for Families Campaign partnered with the BC Poverty Reduction Coalition to deliver a two-day summit for engaged community members from across BC.

Through strengthening relationships from local to local and from local to provincial, the short-term aim is to change how we take action and work together to be more effective in the long-term aim of changing policies to benefit the health and well-being of people living in poverty. The goal of the summit is to create links across communities as well as increase our capacity to organize on issues related to the living wage and poverty reduction. 

The Poverty Reduction–Living Wage Summit took place at the Richmond Radisson Hotel  on November 15 & 16, 2016.
