Poverty Reduction Strategy

The Poverty Reduction Strategy was formulated to develop community-specific recommendations for immediate, medium, and long-term community poverty reduction. Since its inception in 2013, the Poverty Reduction Strategy committee has worked diligently to ensure that the goals and recommendations of the Strategy are being met.

There are five key areas of the Poverty Reduction Strategy:

1. Children and Youth

2. Indigenous People

3. Housing and Homelessness

4. Income Security

5. Health and Wellness

Many of the social issues in Thunder Bay and the District are directly related to poverty and issues surrounding poverty. Through community engagement and using a collective impact approach through programming, data collection and data dissemination the Poverty Reduction Strategy committee has been able to make strides that help to eliminate poverty.
