How Canada Performs on Child Poverty

The Conference Board of Canada provides details and analysis on Canadian society.

They give Canada a C” on Child Poverty (follow this link for details).

Of note: The Conference Board of Canada uses the OECD’s relative measure of child poverty,which calculates the proportion of children living in households where disposable income is less than 50 per cent of the median in each country.

How will we as Anglicans in the Diocese of Ottawa define Child Poverty so that we can best engage in ministry and advocacy?
