Development, Adoption & Implementation of Provincial Poverty Reduction
Submitted by: Kootenay Lake DPAC, SD#8
Be it resolved that
BCCPAC advocate for the provincial government to develop, adopt, and implement a long term comprehensive and effective Provincial Poverty Reduction Plan that addresses the root causes of poverty. The plan must include specific policies, clear targets, timelines, and reporting processes to address, at a minimum, the need for affordable housing, income minimums, access to quality affordable childcare, training, education and community health care with an overall goal of measurably reducing child and family poverty in BC.
