The P.E.I. Working Group for a Livable Income, in partnership with the Public Health Associations of New Brunswick and P.E.I., invites the community to a forum on the reality of poverty in P.E.I. and a dialogue about solutions.
The event will be held on Nov. 20, 6:30 p.m., at Trinity United Church Hall, 220 Richmond St., Charlottetown.
Keynote speaker is Dr. Heather Morrison, chief health officer for Prince Edward Island. She will discuss her P.E.I. governmentcommissioned research, Children’s Report 2017: Investing in our Future.
Participants will follow up with a dialogue about how to find and promote solutions to child and family poverty on the Island. The dialogue will be directed by the P.E.I.
