Did You Know...

Nearly five million people in Canada – that’s one out of every seven individuals – currently live in poverty?

Poverty is a widespread issue across the country and the world, but vulnerable groups such as people living with disabilities, single parents, elderly individuals, youth, and racialized communities are more susceptible.
