Poverty Reduction TO

PRSTOTFPC have been participating in Poverty Reduction TO. Over 75 community based organizations have come together to identify key actions the City of Toronto should undertake as part of its proposed Poverty Reduction Strategy, and to make sure that strategy is adopted and implemented in the coming months. 6 policy papers to guide the City’s Poverty Reduction Strategy were written, including one on food security contributed by a working group of the TFPC. Many of the recommendations in these papers were included in the City of Toronto’s interim poverty reduction strategy. The final poverty reduction strategy will be brought before City Council later this fall.
