Community Poverty Reduction Initiative

Poverty has impacts on many aspects of community and individual well-being, such as food, housing, education, health and employment. Poverty affects not just the individuals living in poverty, but also the community as a whole. The City of New Westminster is working with the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) and local organizations to reduce poverty in New Westminster through the Community Poverty Reduction Initiative.
