On February 14th, Citizens for Public Justice, along with our partners on the Dignity for All campaign for a poverty-free Canada hosted “What’s Next? How do we Address Poverty in Canada?” on Parliament Hill. Over 130 people – including a significant number of parliamentarians, advocacy groups, CPJ members, and members of the public – attended the public forum, with many more from across the country watching online via our live feed.
The evening featured a panel discussion with representatives from all parties. Participants expressed a strong desire to continue the non-partisan dialogue established at the event and to work together to identify and implement concrete, achievable measures for ending poverty with broad appeal and support. This represents a significant step forward in the fight against poverty for which CPJ is proud to have played a role.
