With a new parliamentary session underway this week, the question of what movement we will see on poverty this year comes to mind. During the last session and May’s federal election, many social justice organizations and political parties rallied to bring poverty to the forefront of public discourse noting key areas of need: pension and employment supports, childcare, preventative healthcare, fair taxation, and affordable housing. Poverty is all-encompassing and touches each sector of society in various ways. It demands a comprehensive approach to combat its reach. Dignity for All members recognize this reality, and are hard at work to ensure poverty issues are on the agenda.
