Waterloo Region’s Guaranteed Income Supplement Campaign
Published on 06/01/2005
Spurred by media reports about a lack of uptake of the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) by low-income seniors, Human Resources Development Canada and the OP2000 poverty reduction project in Waterloo Region collaborated on a successful GIS awareness campaign in 2002. This community story is the first in a series which highlights work undertaken by municipalities now involved in Vibrant Communities – a pan-Canadian initiative which seeks local solutions to reduce poverty and build more caring communities.
