What does it really mean to live in poverty?

Canada Without Poverty

The Board of Directors at Canada Without Poverty (CWP) is made up of individuals from all over Canada who have lived experience of poverty. The experiences of their board help CWP to understand the causes, consequences and possible solutions to poverty. CWP is sharing their board's experiences by presenting a series of one-on-one interviews that ask the question - what does it mean to live in poverty in Canada? The first piece in this series is with Harriet McLachlan, the president of the CWP board who has a Masters in Social Work and lived for 35 years in poverty.
