It’s Time to End Poverty in Canada

It’s time to get serious about ending poverty in Canada. It’s 2014. We’re too developed, too wealthy, and too kind-hearted a country to allow poverty to affect any of us.

One in 11 Canadians live in poverty. It’s the root cause that puts basic human dignity out of reach for so many people, making access to everyday needs, such as food, clothing and shelter, difficult. In a country of relative wealth and abundant resources, shouldn’t we all benefit from them?

The Salvation Army recently launched our 2014 Summer Campaign, highlighting the injustice people living in poverty face. At The Salvation Army, we aim to be a transforming influence in the communities of our world by restoring hope and dignity in those who are struggling.

Will you join us in the fight against poverty?
