Policy at Maytree

Maytree’s work is focused on systemic solutions to poverty. Through our work on public policy, we aim to better understand the causes and dimensions of poverty and to identify practical solutions. We work with governments, non-profits and communities to find ways to make sure that public policies in Canada work to reduce poverty and promote opportunity.

Our policy work includes research and analysis, developing policy options, and convening conversations. We are committed to doing work that is high-quality, evidence-based, and focused on the outcome of ending poverty in Canada.
