1 In 7 Canadians Live Below the Poverty Line

02 Feb 1 In 7 Canadians Live Below the Poverty Line

Nearly five million people in Canada live below the poverty line, that’s 1 out of 7. We want to make that number smaller each year by making sure people have access to proper clothing and other basic essentials necessary for a dignified and prosperous life.

Poverty can be expressed in different aspects of a person’s life, including food security, health, or housing. If you know someone in need, we are here to help. Over the last 35 years we have helped over 1.2M people, trained over 2,010 job seekers, and kept 8M Lbs of new clothes out of landfills.
