Poverty Reduction Strategy initiative extended

The Clinic is participating in the Poverty Reduction Strategy initiative for the City of Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton County. The goal of the strategy is:

  • to clearly identify the impact of poverty in the municipalities;
  • to define how poverty can be measured to evaluate the impact of changes, programs etc.
  • to identify clearly defined goals and objectives;
  • to include an Action Plan to identify specific recommendations; and
  • to be inclusive of all sectors and populations in both municipalities.

More details are available on the City of Kawartha Lakes website. Staff Lawyer Lisa Loader is a member of the Poverty Reduction Strategy Steering Committee.
