Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives and Save the Children : Poverty or Prosperity - Indigenous Children in Canada

Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives and Save the Children : Poverty or Prosperity - Indigenous Children in Canada

Ratings: (0)|Views: 244 |Likes:
Despite repeated promises from federal and provincial governments to
address the issue — including a 1989 commitment by all Parliamentarians to eliminate child poverty by the year 2000 — Canada ranks 25th among the 30 countries in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Develop- ment with regard to child poverty. Recent modest declines in rates cannot hide the fact that over a million children in Canada still live in poverty.
