Child Poverty: 25 Years Later


This year marks 25 years since the unanimous House of Commons’ resolution to end child poverty in Canada and five years after the entire House of Commons voted “to develop an immediate plan to end poverty for all in Canada.” This hasn't happened.


Today, across Canada, report cards on child poverty are being released to show where we are on child poverty and where we need to go.

Take a look at the Report Cards for 2014.
