Share your Stories

We encourage you to share your story to help us better understand how we can address poverty in Canada. We are interested in your personal experiences, and information on any supports or programs that helped you, or where you experienced gaps in social supports.

When you share your thoughts, please tell your story as anonymously as you can. That means avoiding names of people you know and the names of organizations. Instead, please use more general names such as “my aunt,” “our local food bank,” “our school” and so on. We also welcome photo or video submissions.

Selected stories or excerpts may be posted on this site or used in other communication activities for this or other Government of Canada activities.

The views expressed are those of the contributor and do not necessarily represent the views of the Government of Canada.
