Adequate Support Services
Adequate support services must be available to assist people in developing healthy strategies to cope with their challenges.
Access to Healthy Food
Strengthening existing programs, increasing the purchase and use of local foods, and improving the storage and transportation of food all lead to better access to healthy food.
Access to Housing
A range of housing options need to be in place that include the needs of people with disabilities, seniors, people living with addictions or mental illnesses, and Aboriginal people from northern communities.
People should be part of a community free from the effects of poverty
Poverty is not just about income. Poverty is about inequality and exclusion. New Canadians, lone-parent families, youth, Aboriginal peoples, women, racialized peoples, and individuals with mental health issues and disabilities are more likely to live in poverty.
