Plan & Build 

Poverty Reduction

The Boundary Region Poverty Reduction Strategy consists of 21 recommended actions (see links below) to reduce poverty and foster community well-being in the Boundary region, laid out across 4 key themes that align with the Together BC framework: Partnerships & Relationships; Healthy Public Policy - Housing, Transportation, Economic Development, Food Security/Food Systems, and Access to Social Services; Education & Awareness; and Monitoring & Evaluation.

The actions are intended to be reflective of, and responsive to, the needs identified by those people with lived experience of poverty, take an equitable and inclusive approach to addressing poverty, and employ both upstream and downstream strategies across the stages of influence from individual to governmental. They are intended to be achievable, realistic, and build on the community assets already in place to reduce poverty in the Boundary Region.
