Inclusive Business & Growth Plan/
Poverty Reduction - Action Group

The ‘Future Statement’ or Vision of this dual group is:

Kingston is a vibrant
community that has a broad-based economic growth plan, focused on job creation which is inclusive of people with varied skill levels and partnerships.
Kingston is exemplary in its efforts to reduce homelessness, poverty and other forms of marginalization through advocacy, community-based initiatives and citizen participation.

Activities
Note: Initially both groups chose to collaborate in order to identify joint and separate action strategies.
Developed a database of key services, funding, people organizations, models and networks to tap into resources and networks of those involved and discover gaps and opportunities. Meeting with key Kingston business leaders to share ideas and information and to learn how to engage the business community in this work.
The group recently brought Paul Johnson from Westland Ministries in Hamilton to share his experience and knowledge of poverty reduction including successes in Hamilton.
