In Spring 2019, an intrepid band of data adventurers set out on a quest on behalf of the Poverty Task Force Grey Bruce. The journey would be long and revealing in many ways. Getting to impact, our goal was to demonstrate how the work of the PTF changes lives and communities.

The PTF is a member of the Communities Ending Poverty/Tamarack Institute. Communities Ending Poverty is a powerful collective impact movement comprised of 330 municipalities and represented by 80 regional poverty reduction roundtables across Canada. We have learned that to end poverty, it takes the whole community and our entire country working together.

Our Impact Report 2020 set the baseline for annual reporting against a set of data collected from partners and government statistics. However, since March 2020, partners have been focused on COVID 19 pandemic response therefore our planned annual reporting has been delayed. In the interim, we have released an Annual Report 2021 that speaks to our strategic directions but we anticipate an Annual Impact Report to be released at the end of 2022.

We would like to thank the Community Foundation Grey Bruce for its support in the production of this Impact Report.
