Understanding the Poverty Line & Market Basket Measure

October 16, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Throughout the fall the Division of Social Accountability (DSA) will co-host along with the Saskatoon Poverty Reduction Partnership (SPRP) a Friday webinar series to discuss lessons learned during COVID – how these intersect with 12 Bold Ideas to Eliminate Poverty, and how to move forward. These online conversations will explore topics such as housing and homelessness, understanding the poverty line and market basket measure, the impacts of CERB and income assistance, racism and criminalization of poverty, youth poverty, the digital divide and access to technology, and more. Sessions will be held on Fridays.
