Poverty and Income Inequality X Action Plans Book Workshop

How are minimum wage and corporate power related to income inequality? Find out how a growing income gap perpetuates poverty.

Canada’s official wealth is growing, but so is the rate of poverty. Why do the rich keep getting richer and the poor keep getting poorer? Is income inequality bad for everyone, or just some people? How can we build a society where everyone prospers, and what does it look like? From minimum wage to corporate power, learn about the roots of poverty and how it affects us in BC. We explore practical ideas and realistic solutions for poverty elimination.

Learning Outcomes
  • To learn and think critically about the unequal distribution of wealth and resources, from a global to national to local context.

  • To look at some concrete ways to work toward more equitable distribution of wealth and resources in our local communities
