Sharing Ideas on How to Reduce Poverty in Saskatchewan

Released on April 22, 2015

The Advisory Group on Poverty Reduction launched its online public consultation website today.  Saskatchewan citizens, communities, governments and businesses  have the opportunity to provide their feedback on how we can work together to make life better for those in our province who are unable to meet their basic needs.

“I commend the Advisory Group for the work they have done so far in identifying ways our government can make life better for our province’s most vulnerable people,” Social Services Minister Donna Harpauer said.  “Public input will help to strengthen the recommendations that will inform our province’s approach to poverty reduction.”

The Advisory Group’s online survey is available on the website at www.saskatchewan.ca/government/have-your-say/reducing-poverty-in-saskatchewan.

“The online survey will serve as a means to complement the consultation work our group is doing,” Advisory Group on Poverty Reduction co-chair Alison Robertson said.  “We ask all Saskatchewan citizens, community members, businesses and organizations to take a few short minutes of their time to answer some key questions on how we can all work together to reduce poverty in Saskatchewan.”

In addition to the online process, the Advisory Group is also holding one-on-one meetings with key stakeholders across the province.  The group will also be hosting a roundtable discussion on poverty reduction at the end of the month.  The day-long facilitated discussion will take place in Saskatoon and will include the participation of more than 130 organizations and individuals from across the province.

The 11-member Poverty Reduction Advisory Group is made up of six members of the public and five members of government.  The group is expected to provide its recommendations to government that will inform the development of a poverty reduction strategy in June 2015.
