Cities Reducing Poverty (CRP) Eastern Summit: Cities Innovating to Reduce Poverty
September 18, 2018 — September 19, 2018
|Location:||Region of Peel, ON, Canada|
|Cost:||$299 - $399|
Cities are working together in an unprecedented way to develop place-based approaches to ending poverty. Today, more than 175 cities in Canada have, or are developing, community plans that engage governments, businesses, not for profits, and citizens with lived/living experience of poverty to work together to implement new approaches. We are at a unique moment in history in which cities, provinces and our federal government are all converging with independent, yet interrelated, poverty reduction strategies.
We welcome you to join Cities Innovating to Reduce Poverty, hosted by Vibrant Communities and the Region of Peel, on September 18-19.
This event will elevate conversations from our previous national summits in 2015 (Ottawa), 2016 (Edmonton), and 2017 (Hamilton) about innovation in poverty reduction, featuring the unique role of city, provincial and federal strategies. It will facilitate learning and dialogue across sectors, harness the distinctive synergies of today’s poverty reduction movement, and take our collective understanding of innovation in poverty reduction to the next level.
