TogetherBC: British Columbia's Poverty Reduction Strategy

Version imprimable

StatsCanada information shows that in 2016, there were 557,000 people in British Columbia living in poverty, 99,000 of them children. TogetherBC is British Columbia's first poverty reduction strategy. It is a starting point for delivering on the targets introduced in 2018’s Poverty Reduction Strategy Act: a 25% reduction in B.C.’s overall poverty rate and a 50% reduction in the child poverty rate by 2024.

This strategy brings together solutions to poverty from across government and across society. This is a complex challenge requiring solutions from all levels of government, First Nations, businesses, community organizations and individuals.
