Abstract:

Poverty Free Saskatchewan (PFS) created this document in the hope that it can serve as a catalyst for a much-needed discussion on poverty in our province. We would like this document to encourage a renewed dialogue on poverty and foster new and innovative proposals and solutions from concerned citizens. This is your invitation to get involved in creating an action plan to eliminate poverty in Saskatchewan. Our network extends an invitation to connect with us. We want to hear from everyone concerned with the issues of poverty in our province. This discussion document will explain that: Poverty still exists today and is a serious problem. Economic inequality is associated with many social and health problems. Poverty costs us all. Eliminating poverty has many benefits and will save society money. Poverty is not just about money, it’s about being excluded from community life. Poverty can be eliminated. Other provinces and countries have reduced economic inequality through the development of antipoverty programs. We can all work together to end poverty in Saskatchewan. Saskatchewan has experienced an economic boom over the past decade. However, poverty still exists here and throughout Canada. A large group from around the province have joined together to create PFS and are working to end poverty now!
