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 6 sector-based Action Groups: Income SecurityFood SecurityHousingTransportation Bridges (Out of Poverty) Action Group and Moving Forward on Health Equity.  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 7th 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 Transportation Action Group is an adhoc group made up of Grey Bruce transportation service providers, service users and policy makers.

    1. Hello yellowkayak,

      There is very little transportation up-and-down the Peninsula. There used to be a Bruce Penisular Bus service (2017) but it was not financially viable for the private company that ran it. MOVIN’GB of Home and Community Support Service Grey Bruce and SMART Transportation Services provide non-emergency medical transportation services with people with low income and/or with disabilities. There has also been a bus that traveled from Toronto to the park in the summertime but I am not sure if it is running this summer.

      There will be a new airport service between Wiarton Airport and Toronto Island beginning this spring 2019.

      With very little public transportation across Bruce County and Grey County we continue to advocate to the Ontario government and Federal government for more rural transportation that will support people to move between communities.
