All Aboard Manitoba’s Poverty Train

by NationTalk on September 10, 2009412 Views

Sherri Torjman, Ken Battle and Michael Mendelson, September 2009

This report summarizes the core elements of the newly-introduced poverty reduction strategy in Manitoba. Announced on May 21, 2009, All Aboard represents an annual investment of $744 million, including $212 million in new funding. To tackle the numerous factors that create and sustain poverty, the province is investing in four clusters of intervention: safe affordable housing; education, jobs and income support; strong and healthy families; and coordinated programs and services. The strategy has several elements of success: It is a whole-of-government approach rather than the effort of a single department. It invests in recognized pathways out of poverty and engages partners outside government in the diverse interventions. The strategy provides direct (albeit modest) payments to households with children to boost their incomes immediately. All Aboard includes a process to coordinate its many components and monitor its impact.
