Submissions on BC’s Poverty Reduction Strategy

In March 2018, West Coast LEAF submitted recommendations on BC’s Poverty Reduction Strategy to the Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction. We highlighted the need for an intersectional gender analysis for all policies, legislation, and decision-making to address poverty, and for inter-ministerial collaboration and a whole-of-government approach to tackling this issue. We made specific recommendations in the areas of pay equity, living wages, child care, child protection support services, and access to justice.
