It is the Committee’s intent that the recommendations made in this report contribute to the development of an effective federal poverty reduction plan that will reduce poverty and increase labour force participation rates. Members of the Committee realize that the implementation of the federal action plan recommended in this report will require an ongoing commitment and greater cooperation between federal, provincial and territorial governments. The Committee agrees that the time has come to seriously address the risk factors associated with poverty, and that the federal government can work in cooperation with other levels of government, Aboriginal stakeholders and community organizations to ensure that all Canadians live in dignity and can fully and actively participate in Canada’s social and economic life.
