No riding in Canada is immune from child poverty, according to the latest research from Campaign 2000: End Child and Family Poverty in Canada.
A striking new series of maps demonstrates that child and family poverty persists in every riding nation wide. With over 1.3 million children living in poverty in Canada, the issue affects all Canadians and must be addressed by all parties before election day on October 19th. This is the first time that child poverty rates have been mapped by riding from coast to coast to coast.
