BC Poverty Reduction Strategy Listening Campaign

Calling all Single Moms in BC!

THE BC GOVERNMENT IS FINALLY DEVELOPING A POVERTY REDUCTION PLAN FOR BC AND THE VOICES OF SINGLE MOTHERS IN POVERTY MUST IMPACT THE CONTENT AND DEVELOPMENT OF THIS PLAN

The Single Mothers' Alliance has received a Small Group Discussion Convening Grant to bring single mothers together to share insights and feedback about what needs to change to end single mother poverty in BC. The deadline to submit all the feedback and input SMA gathers is March 30th, 2018 so please sign up to participate or send your input to us now!

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU! We are calling on all single mothers living in poverty to speak up and share your concerns and vision for change to ensure BC's poverty reduction plan includes strong, targeted measures to tackle the high rate of single mother poverty in BC.

Sign up for an In-Person Small Group Consultation!

SMA is holding in-person small group consultations with single mothers in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. To find our more about consultations for single mothers in poverty in the Downtown Eastside, East Vancouver and elsewhere, please contact viveca@singlemothersbc.org.

Online Consultation Coming Soon

To participate in our online consultation for single mothers for those in towns and rural areas around the province please email info@singlemothersbc.org to book your spot!

Online Survey Option is Easy!

Another way to participate is to submit your input through our online survey. If you could answer the two questions below and email your answers to info@singlemothersbc.org, thank you very much! 

What are the issues facing you and people living in poverty right now?

What would address these issues and help you and others out of poverty?

Thank you very much for taking the time to share, we will submit everything we gather in one large report detailing all we heard from single mothers through this 'small group' convening process. 

Regards,

SMA Coordinating Committee

    Hello and I’m wondering the same as the previous commenter. Are Victoria areas including Sooke going to be considered and would there be an opportunity to assist?
