Reducing Poverty Among the Single Non-Elderly Population of Manitoba

The CCPA-MB has released a four-page report, written by Harvey Stevens, that shows that the single non-elderly poor in Manitoba experience the greatest depth of poverty yet receive the lowest per capita net transfers of any low income group. Yet, this group receives the lowest level of income support from social assistance and is provided with minimal if any training and employment supports.

The report can be found here.

Harvey Stevens was a senior policy analyst with Family Services and Housing for twenty years prior to his retirement and specialized in poverty and social assistance issues.
