What does a just and equitable pandemic recovery look like for low-income communities across Canada? The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the deep inequities that exist in Canada with already vulnerable and marginalized communities experiencing greater impacts in their health, social and economic outcomes. As we begin to look at a pandemic recovery, what does it mean for low-income communities? How do we ensure that no one, and no child, is left behind? Campaign 2000: End Child and Family Poverty will be releasing its 30th edition of a series of national and sub-national report cards on the state of child poverty, which include a suite of evidence-based solutions to put us on the path to ending poverty in Canada and realizing a just and equitable pandemic recovery. The report cards release on or around the November 24th anniversary of 1989 all-party federal resolution to end child poverty by the year 2000.
The webinar will share key findings about the state of child and family poverty from our report card, as well as bring together poverty reduction thought leaders to highlight the relevance of the findings to ongoing efforts to address anti-Indigenous racism, anti-Black racism, affordable housing, childcare, ableism, and the COVID-19 pandemic. It will include a presentation of the findings, a moderated panel discussion, spotlight a provincial report card, and opportunities for audience Q&A.

This webinar, along with the release of the report card, are part of a series of joint actions by several national anti-poverty and social policy organizations including the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, the Dignity for All Coalition, and UNICEF, to call on this new federal government to take decisive action on ending poverty in Canada.
