Guest speaker:

Charles Plante, University of Saskatchewan

Session description:

Poverty is not just costly to the poor but also to our province as a whole. In 2014, the Poverty Costs Saskatchewan campaign calculated these costs and rallied public support behind our province’s first provincial poverty reduction strategy. In this webinar, Charles Plante will present on why the costs of poverty are so important and describe how they are calculated. For example, our latest estimates for Saskatchewan indicate that the health-related costs of poverty alone are in excess of $300 million. The total cost from all sources is nearly $3.5 billion or more than 4% of provincial GDP. 

Join us to learn more about:

  • The rationale for undertaking the Cost of Poverty report in Saskatchewan
  • The economic argument for addressing poverty in Saskatchewan
  • How the information generated is helping to inform changes in both policy and practices
