Families Minister Scott Fielding and Education and Training Minister Ian Wishart are inviting Manitobans to share their thoughts on how to prevent and reduce poverty as they announced the launch of consultations that will guide the development of a new poverty reduction strategy.

“The reasons for poverty are complex and multi-dimensional and we want to hear Manitobans’ diverse experiences so we can develop an innovative, inclusive and people-focused strategy that includes meaningful measurement and targets,” said Fielding, who co-chairs the province’s Poverty Reduction Committee with Wishart. “Consultations will focus on pathways to move Manitobans out of poverty, and input from citizens and stakeholders will help us identify priorities.”
