Poverty Reduction and Economic Inclusion Act 2014 - British Columbia

Summary: 

This Act will increase equality and economic inclusion in British Columbia by requiring the development and implementation of a strategy that includes specific and legislated targets and timelines in order to reduce the breadth and depth of poverty. A lead minister will be appointed to coordinate all aspects of the development and implementation of the strategy, in collaboration with a designated cabinet committee that will be co-chaired by the minister and the Premier. The Act also requires broad consultation in the development of the plan. An Advisory Committee will be created and will provide advice, monitor the implementation of the strategy and comment publicly on progress in the Annual Report to the Legislative Assembly.
