Participants will come out of this webinar with a greater knowledge of key policy frameworks and recommendations to address poverty in Canada by considering both the Canadian Poverty Reduction Strategy, the new way to measure poverty in Canada and the work of anti-poverty advocates like you. We will explore the benefits and implications for those providing services in the social work field or conducting research, as well as opportunities for social workers to engage with the new official poverty line, systemic analysis and advocacy.
