HPRT Response to Ontario’s “Income Security: A Roadmap for Change” Report

The staff, board, and volunteer members at the Halton Poverty Roundtable appreciate the opportunity to provide feedback on the recommendations of the “Income Security: A Roadmap for Change” (Roadmap) report. This Roadmap has the potential to transform income security programs that affect the lives of hundreds of thousands of low-income people in Ontario. The key to this transformation is to move beyond the words, so eloquently written in the Roadmap, to acting on the recommendations inherent in the Roadmap, as well as any innovative and viable responses that follow from community feedback. We also acknowledge the Ministry for recognizing the need for a much needed human rights-based equity lens approach to serving vulnerable populations.
