PUBLIC MEETING: Poverty Reduction Consultation Hosted by MPP Laura Albanese

Poverty Reduction Consultation

The purpose of the consultation session is to hear the community’s perspective on how we can continue to work together to create jobs, prosperity, and reduce poverty in Ontario through innovation and partnerships.

When Breaking the Cycle: Ontario’s Poverty Reduction Strategy was launched in 2008, it signaled a bold new vision for a fairer society.  Now, the government is engaging people across the province as they work to renew the strategy and continue their progress to reduce poverty in Ontario.

Your feedback will be a vital part of this process.

The engagement session will be hosted by Laura and take place on Monday September 30, 2013 at the:

Mt. Dennis Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 31

1050 Weston Rd, Toronto, ON M6N 3S2

The consultation will run from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Refreshments will be provided.

Please RSVP to Darlene at dferreira@liberal.ola.org and please let us know if you require any accommodation (such as transit fare reimbursement, etc.) to participate.

The government is committed to hearing from as many Ontarians as possible as they work to renew the Poverty Reduction Strategy. If you are unable to attend, you may also provide your input on this important discussion by visiting www.ontario.ca/breakingthecycle.

We hope to see you on Monday September 30th and hear your ideas on how we can work together to break the cycle of poverty and increase opportunities for all Ontarians.
