National Poverty Elimination StrategyPoverty affects over 1 in 10 Canadians and disproportionately affects aboriginal peoples, recent immigrants, those with disabilities, youth and children. It leads to poor health, such that individuals living in poverty suffer more health problems and have lower life expectancy than those not living in poverty.

The majority of provincial and territorial governments have adopted poverty reduction strategies, but are limited in the extent they are able to reduce poverty in their jurisdiction without support of the federal government.

Help Elizabeth compel the federal government to adopt a national poverty strategy! Sign below or download this petition, have as many people as possible to sign it, and mail it – postage free – to either her Ottawa or Sidney offices.
