Child Poverty Report Card

On November 24th, 1989, the House of Commons unanimously resolved to end child poverty in Canada by the year 2000. Each year, to mark the anniversary of this resolution, Campaign 2000 releases a series of reports spanning coast-to-coast updating the state of child poverty in Canada. These reports serve as a reminder of an unfulfilled promise. Currently, across the country 1,242,530 children under the age of 18 are living in poverty; 27,790 of whom live in New Brunswick. This [2017] report, written in partnership with Campaign 2000, sheds light on poverty in New Brunswick while locating the struggle to end child poverty within the Canadian social landscape.
