Poverty reduction plan unveiled
The second poverty reduction plan was unveiled today by the Economic and Social Inclusion Corporation of New Brunswick (ESIC). The new plan, like the first one, brings together people who live or have lived in poverty with representatives of the non-profit sector, the business sector, and the government. It has a unique collective and collaborative approach based on the premise that everyone is part of the solution.
