For anyone who would like to get involved and join us – here is the information you need!!
We need people with all sorts of skills. Taking minutes, leafleting, canvassing for petitions… making banners, decorating bulletin boards, we are a very creative group and our campaigns to raise awareness are fun!!!
Our groups started in 2009 from another campaign called Poverty is Making us Sick. We work locally with our community and we are a group made up of community members that live with low incomes.
The meetings are open – anyone can come along and join in. You don’t need to call ahead. If you are interested in receiving information, or meeting minutes, upcoming events, please leave us a message (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can get in touch. We meet every other Thursday. The next meeting is August 11th at 1:30.
Where are we?

We’re trying to raise rates for every person on social assistance and demanding that the process of deciding what money people get on Social Assistance is transparent and reflects the ACTUAL cost of living!
We fight for minimum wage increases and are involved in trying to lower TTC costs so that transportation is accessible to everyone!
