The goal with this Summary is to:

  • share the project progress & what's been heard so far

  • hear back from the public to ensure the main themes have been accurately captured and

  • to continue to gather ideas on how we can work together to end poverty at a local level.


Public feedback about the Summary can be shared through a new survey found here.

The information and ideas gathered throughout the community engagement for this project will be put towards the creation of a local Poverty Reduction Plan that will identify strategies for tackling the underlying causes of poverty here at home.

Thank you for your continued participation!

The CommUNITY Together to End Poverty Hw-nuts'-ulwum (As One) project has provided a Summary of Public Engagement that has identified 10 common themes related to poverty. These have come from a series of opportunities to hear from the public about the impacts of poverty experienced by residents of Ladysmith and Stz’uminus.


The ten priority themes that emerged, have not been prioritized in any particular order and are included in the link to the complete document below.
