Poverty reduction consultation in New Brunswick

The New Brunswick government has launched a year long consultation for New Brunswickers, community organizations, business, and the government to come together to create a long-term plan to reduce poverty in the province. One out of every eight New Brunswickers lives in poverty, one in six children in New Brunswick lives in poverty and more then 45% of single mothers live in poverty. Individuals and organizations are invited to take part. They may participate in the various sessions to debate how to reduce poverty; to determine how to implement actions; and to decide how the plan will be monitored. They may forward suggestions by using e-mail, fax, regular mail, or through the website, http://www2.gnb.ca/content/gnb/en/departments/esic.html.
