Tackling Child Poverty in BC

One of every seven children in BC is living in poverty and two-thirds of them live in Metro Vancouver. 

How can the foundations of social development, health and learning in early childhood be strengthened? What are the social and economic benefits associated with better investment in early childhood development? What can policymakers, civil society organizations, businesses, parents, youth and other citizens do ensure that every child is ‘fed, clothed and ready to learn?’

Please join us for an evening of dialogue to raise awareness about child poverty in BC—an issue that falls to all of BC’s citizens to address. Together, we can move beyond defining the problem and begin to strategize possible solutions.
