Community Poverty Reduction Strategy
On December 5, 2016, New Westminster’s City Council endorsed New Westminster’s Community Poverty Reduction Strategy. The New Westminster Community Poverty Reduction Strategy is the culmination of several years of dedicated work on behalf of the Community Poverty Reduction Committee. The strategy provides a vision for moving forward and specific actions to enhance the quality of life of families, while providing a supportive environment and opportunities to help families move out of poverty. The strategy, which incorporates a five-year action plan, is based on extensive research and a comprehensive community consultation process, including with those with lived experiences of poverty.
