Story Behind the Stats
The Action on Poverty Riding Profiles are a joint initiative of the Durham, Hamilton, Halton, Peel, Toronto and York social planning councils. Individually, they offer a 'snapshot' of the extent and nature of poverty in 53 of the provincial/federal ridings in the 'Golden Horseshoe,' as well as an example of a positive initiative that addresses poverty at the local level. Viewed collectively, these profiles paint a portrait of poverty across the region, and offer an impressive array of responses to this critical challenge to our region.
