Title: Quebec’s Poverty Reduction Plan

Series: Vibrant Communities Seminar Series

Vibrant Communities Trail Builders have been influential in the development of many of the provincial poverty reduction strategies. There is a growing interest across Canada of the unique approaches taken by each province. This series will profile provincial efforts, progress achieved and the role of both place and community engagement in the strategies. Each month, a different province will be profiled and the series will end with a call led by the Caledon Institute of Social Policy analyzing the strategies and the importance of communities in poverty reduction.
