Welcome To The Halton Poverty Roundtable

The Halton Poverty Roundtable is a local non-profit/charity that brings together over 30 community organizations and 100+ volunteers who are committed to working collaboratively to eliminate poverty in Halton and moving towards a common vision where there is no neighbour in need.


Halton Sport Leadership Program


The Halton Sport Leadership Program provides at-risk youth the empowering opportunity to gain confidence, leadership and experience through free training in nationally recognized recreation certification programs.  We have seen a 100% completion rate and over 70% of participants reported going for a job interview with 60% of participants securing employment.

Smart Start Halton


Our Smart Start Halton campaign has delivered many outreach and education sessions across Halton to educate the community about the Canada Learning Bond. Together, we have increased the take-up rate of the federally funded Canada Learning Bond (CLB) from 28% to 42%, bringing in over $30 million in post-secondary education savings for over 15,000 children from low-income families.

Halton Community Benefits Network


The Halton Community Benefits Network encourages both public and private sectors to adopt business practices that lead to economic & social opportunity for everyone and deliver bottom line benefits for the Halton Region businesses, public sector organizations & our citizens.

Income Security Education


We are dedicated to sharing knowledge about what poverty looks like in Halton Region. We bring awareness through presentations and outreach to identify the systemic causes of poverty and work towards a measurable shift in attitudes and stigmas about people living in poverty, empowering Halton citizens to start conversations about poverty.
