Raised Awareness And Advocated For Poverty Reduction: Over the years we brought in guest speakers, such as Armine Yalnizyan, Michael Blair, Michael Shapcott and senator Hugh Segal, and organized many seminars and workshops covering decent work, living income, healthy food and affordable housing.

Influenced Politicians To Make Progress In Poverty Reduction: We have met (and continue to meet) with provincial and municipal politicians such as Kathleen Wynne, Mi ke Colle, Cheri DiNovo, Joe Mihevc, Christin Carmichael Greb and Jaye Robinson to stress the importance of poverty reduction and work together to create solutions such as the increase in minimum wage and the revisions to the social assistance.

Had A Real Impact On Outcomes: We organized a multi-church 90 minute meeting with Eglinton-Lawrence MPP Mike Colle in December 2013 which resulted in two poverty Town Halls meetings hosted by Mike Colle with support from the faith community.

Held All Candidates Meetings: We have a strong reputation for providing voters with the opportunity to meet candidates by hosting all-candidates’ meetings during municipal, provincial and federal elections.
