Canada: Reducing Poverty: What has Worked, and What Should Come Next

Reducing Poverty: What has Worked, and What Should Come Next (PDF; 590 KB)

Anti-poverty initiatives over the last decade in Canada have been successful, mainly by increasing employment among the poor, according to a new study released by the C.D. Howe Institute. In Reducing Poverty: What has Worked, and What Should Come Next, author John Richards finds that policies that target employment for the poor, along with improved labor market conditions, have been key to reducing poverty in Canada. Employment among those at high risk of incurring poverty should always be a consideration when assessing proposed policy reforms, and policies that create greater incentives to enter the workforce make sense. Refined interventions are required, not broad new transfer programs.
