Community Conversation on
Child and Family Poverty
On June 6th CATCH, Success By 6 and Aboriginal CATCH hosted a conversation focusing on influencing policy to benefit the early years.
A summary of these activities will be compiled and presented after August 31, 2016
Inspired by guest speakers Adrienne Montani, Provincial Coordinator of First Call - BC Child and Youth Advocacy Coalition and Trish Garner, Community Organiser of the BC Poverty Reduction Coalition at our April 19th Early Years Network Gathering we will host a community conversation on this topic.
BC is the only province without a poverty reduction plan. We plan to explore how we can influence a poverty reduction plan for BC and what we can do collectively about poverty in our local community.

What makes your neighbourhood good for young children (ages 0-6)?
Is there a great park in your neighbourhood that you and your young children enjoy? Is there a special pathway or bench, meeting place or café that is special to your family? Are there events in your neighbourhood that bring young children and their families together? If you have an example or a story to share, we want to hear from you. We are collecting and showcasing stories to demonstrate the livability of our community for young children. Whether your neighbourhood is older or brand new, in the country or downtown, single or multi-family, or anything in between, we want to hear your story. If you want to share your experiences, your stories, or your favourite places within your neighbourhood, post them here or contact Eve at 250-863-9532, or email@example.com
