Canada Without Poverty

Emerging from the Poor Peoples’ Conference in Toronto, a national gathering of low-income citizens, Canada Without Poverty (CWP) was founded in 1971 as the National Anti-Poverty Organization (NAPO). For the 46 years since then, we have been a leading voice in the anti-poverty movement in Canada, working to ensure that the voices of those with lived experience are included at the policy table and end the stigmatization of people living in low-income. 

At Canada Without Poverty, everyone on our Board of Directors knows poverty first-hand. Their lived experience informs our work and is essential to effectively ending poverty in Canada. To honour their experiences and share their insights, we began our Spotlight on Poverty blog series where board members could tell their stories in their own words about poverty from coast-to-coast-to-coast. In the lead up to November 28th, we will be sharing new installments in the series.
