Supporters and partner organizations in the Region of Peel were surveyed and 200 people from Brampton, Caledon and Mississauga provided feedback on issues and proposed actions. The Strategy addresses issues such as economic opportunities, income security, affordable and accessible transportation, food security and safe and affordable housing. The tactics planned for the implementation of the Strategy include raising awareness through neighbourhood dialogue and a speaker’s series; advocating through updates to elected officials; collaborating with other poverty reduction initiatives; and, monitoring and reporting on the progress of the Strategy.

In response to questions from Councillors Crombie and Tovey, Shelley White stated that through collaboration with Fair Share for Peel and the Region of Peel’s Intergovernmental Relations Advisory Committee, there would be opportunities to advocate for increased provincial support to addressing poverty, prior to the anticipated Spring provincial election.
