Social Issues & Poverty Elimination

There is a gap between highest and lowest income earners in Ontario which continues to grow. Deep poverty (greater than 40% below median income) and working poor (full year, full time workers earning below the poverty line) exist in our local community but may be less visible because we have a relatively high average income. Decent incomes to ensure people can live healthy lives, have decent jobs and decent futures for our youth are serious issues that our provincial government has a role to address. For some background to these issues visit: http://www.waterlooregion.org/poverty-elimination.
