The SPCS has been the community lead on the Poverty Reduction Strategy for over 15 years. Starting with a plan to meet emergency needs the community has moved to understand the role that policy plays in eliminating poverty. Keeping abreast of all of the provincial and federal opportunities the SPCS has lead the community through a series of facilitated workshops and data gathering processes over the years culminating in the current plan to Eliminate Poverty.
