Canada’s tolerance of systemic poverty represses the human spirit and bears paralyzing costs to society. It is an urgent national imperative to reduce poverty now, and eliminate it as soon as possible.
Maytree works with many partners to fight poverty. We listen to the voices of community to understand their needs and issues. We work with government, the central player in creating equity and prosperity. We work with civil society organizations, with employers, and with institutions to make them more effective in building strong and prosperous communities.
Above all, we work with leaders who imagine and deliver effective solutions, and who are relentless in their pursuit of change for a better Canada.
