On August 3, Campaign 2000 submitted its priorities for the 2019 federal budget. According to the submission, eradicating poverty, to ensure every person in Canada the opportunity to succeed and live in dignity, is the right thing to do for children and for all of us. Right now, 4.8 million Canadians suffer the indignity, hunger, insecurity, stress and social exclusion of poverty. Eradicating poverty is undoubtedly essential to promoting Canada’s economic growth and competitiveness as found by the Conference Board of Canada while promoting population health, enhancing social cohesion and enabling fuller social and economic participation of all Canadians.
