Poverty, and the fear of poverty, affects many in Canada. One in seven Canadians are currently living in poverty. That means 4.8 million Canadians are struggling to meet their most basic needs every day. The Commission on Justice and Peace of The Canadian Council of Churches recently released “Healing Poverty.” This reflection and suggested actions is offered for communities of faith to engage in dialogue and action for a faithful response to overcoming poverty in Canada. “Healing Poverty” (in French and English) is available here.
