How do you define poverty?

01 Sep 2017
CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

One challenge in determining a target for the Poverty Reduction Strategy is that Canada does not have an “official definition” of poverty or a consistent way to measure it. In fact, many countries do not. It is difficult to define poverty as it is such a personal experience. For one person, it may be a lack of income, while another may experience poverty because they face barriers to their inclusion in society.
