Peterborough’s Poverty Reduction Plan: Aspiring to a Poverty Free Community


Poverty remains a growing concern in Peterborough City and County where over 16% of the population and nearly 20% of children live in poverty. Aware of the wide spectrum of poverty issues, the Peterborough Poverty Reduction Network (PPRN) launched on April 13, 2016 “Our Plan for Poverty Reduction”, a comprehensive document that lays down the community’s goals and strategies in combating poverty.
