Join us for our Annual General Meeting,
Wednesday march 22
Come get inspired and mobilized to help put poverty on the political agenda in our province. The General Meeting is your chance to learn about the coalition’s work and get engaged in the work to Make Poverty History.
Make Poverty History Manitoba (MPHM) is a multi-sector collaborative coalition - representing Indigenous, newcomer, labour, women, 2SLGBTQ*, disability, business, education, student, youth, urban, rural, and northern communities.
Our coalition is committed to changing public policy to achieve a Manitoba without poverty.
Our efforts are primarily directed at the provincial and municipal level.
Responding to the new Provincial Homelessness Strategy
On Tuesday February 28 the Province of Manitoba finally released its Homelessness Strategy called A Place for Everyone. Make Poverty History Manitoba and the Right to Housing Coalition have been running a campaign leading up to this announcement.
Celebrating a small win
Let’s take a moment to celebrate a small win: this summer, the Manitoba provincial government announced a Family Affordability Package which includes an increase to the Basic Needs Benefit for EIA recipients.
Livable Basic Needs Benefit
Manitobans deserve help meeting essential needs, especially when they're affected by poverty. Our campaign calls on the provincial government to introduce a new Livable Basic Needs Benefit, replacing the existing Employment and Income Assistance (EIA) benefit.
