Engaging low-income residents in community-based poverty reduction requires careful planning and the provision of ongoing support.  Victoria’s Quality of Life CHALLENGE has made this issue a priority and members of a Community Action Team now are serving on a variety of working groups.

This story is the second in a series which highlights the efforts of local partners involved in the Vibrant Communities – a pan-Canadian initiative which seeks local solutions to reduce poverty and build more caring communities.
