The Poverty Task Force builds partnerships with key community stakeholders and networks: working together to eliminate poverty, enhancing our common understanding of poverty issues through solution-based research, knowledge development and information sharing.

The Bruce Grey Poverty Task Force is made up of 5 sector-based Action Groups: Income SecurityFood SecurityHousingTransportation and Bridges Action Group.  These sub-groups of the Poverty Task Force dig deeper into the  root causes of poverty in our communities and take action.

The Community Voices group of the Poverty Task Force makes up a 6th Action Group that examines the causes of poverty from the perspective of people with lived experience.  Members of the Community Voices have graduated from the Getting Ahead program and are advocates for change within their own communities.

The Housing Action Group is made up of social housing managers, health promoters, women’s shelters, legal advisers, housing service agencies and homelessness prevention agencies.
