An update on the development of a provincial poverty reduction strategy
We’re thrilled to hear that the Advisory Committee has begun working towards a poverty reduction strategy for our province. We’re happy to see Alison Robertson named as co-chair of the advisory group, and individuals like Ryan Meili and Cory Neudorf as committee members. We are confident that they will bring excellent insight to the Advisory Committee and wish them all the best as they prepare recommendations for the Government’s poverty reduction strategy.
The Poverty Costs partners have spent a lot of time discussing what our role might look like in the coming months. What we know for sure is that Poverty Costs is committed to infusing the development of the strategy with First Voice wherever possible, and will be seeking to provide opportunities for the community to have their voices heard.
Stay tuned for more information as the next phase of strategic planning unfolds!
2014 Global Citizen Awards
This year, the Saskatchewan Council for International Cooperation is ‘celebrating the power of people working together’. We’re honoured to have been recognized as a recipient of a Global Citizen Award for our efforts throughout our campaign in 2014. A huge thank you to Ethel, Lois and Sharon for nominating the team! We would also like to acknowledge the hard work dedicated to poverty reduction put forth by other Saskatchewan based organizations over many years. Without you, the Poverty Costs campaign wouldn’t have been nearly as successful. Hope to see you at the Awards Gala on February 5th!
