The 2010 Social Audit was a faith community assessment of the status of poverty in Ontario, Canada.
ISARC (Interfaith Social Assistance Reform Coalition) provided community hearings for the most vulnerable across Ontario to tell their stories of living in poverty and give us their ideas for change at the political level.
The 2010 “Social Audit sought to communicate the social effects of the current Ontario government’s policies and actions towards people living in poverty and our society as a whole.”
The results of the 2010 Social Audit that was conducted in York Region will be presented at the following meeting:
York Region ISARC Social Audit Presentation at the Community And Health Services Committee Meeting
York Region Administration Building
17250 Yonge Street, Newmarket
Wednesday January 19th, 2:00 pm in Meeting Room A
