Living Wage for Families BC annually calculates the Living Wage for communities across BC, certifies employers that pay a living wage to their staff and contractors, and advocates for complementary government policies that would help families make ends meet.
Our goal is for every working British Columbian to make a living wage.
To inform our work, Living Wage for Families BC works with a broad base of community organizations, allied groups, and employers. We also conduct research to ensure our work is informed by those with lived experience of working poverty and living wages. We are committed to good practices in working with communities impacted by working poverty, and we take guidance from the principles of the Manifesto for Ethical Research in the Downtown Eastside.
