Join us Thursday, April 23, 12 pm at the Manitoba Legislature. We will ask the finance minister to walk a mile in the shoes of people living in poverty. We are asking for measures to help end poverty in this year’s provincial budget:
- Increase the housing budget by $30 million to adequately fund existing commitments to increase supply without reducing other important housing initiatives including the existing social housing stock.
- Increase the maximum Rent Assist benefit level to equal 75% of median market rent.
