Calgary has all the resources necessary for us to be self sufficient and contribute as an active participant in society.
Join Calgary Economic Development in a two-part conversation to provide valuable input into a municipal poverty reduction initiative. We work together to use our resources differently to enhance the social and economic well-being of all. A number of key questions will be explored during the two sessions including:
* What are the most pressing poverty issues and what contributes to poverty?
* What should be the goals and objectives for a poverty-reduction strategy?
* What recommendations do you have for reducing poverty in Calgary?
* What are the priorities for action and who needs to be involved?
