This project brings together community stakeholders, existing networks, and people with lived experience to implement a community poverty reduction strategy. With an industry based economy, we have an economic environment with a lot of variability. We are also a regional centre providing government, health, education and other services to a large rural region. Poverty here is high, as is the cost of living in comparison with other communities our size. We have low levels of education and a gap between skills availability and economic opportunities. We will work together to identify opportunities to reduce the number of people who live in poverty, and the depth of poverty in our community.
