Report of the New Brunswick Conference on Poverty and Policy
Authors: Urban Core Support Network
This is a report on a New Brunswick conference, attended by 63 invitees, including those living in poverty, public officials & administrators, representatives of labour, business, and a variety of community groups. The conference goal was to learn mutually acceptable ways for people in both the community and the government to develop effective public policy. Invitees were encouraged to attend in the spirit of working together, to reduce each other's isolation and to explore ways to work from the ‘outside' community to the ‘inside' government.
