Without Government Help, Poverty in Ontario is Only Gaining Steam

| Posted 08.31.2012 | Canada Impact

It's the Fed's plan to invest $0 by 2016 in the federal affordable housing initiative, and cut other funds by 52 per cent. With all of the knowledge on the human and financial costs of poverty versus government savings, it is clear that action is necessary for greater prosperity for all in Canada.
