Manitobans strongly support increased funding to help people living in poverty

EIA in Manitoba is inadequate and punitive. It does not provide enough financial support for individuals and families who depend on it to meet even their basic necessities. Every step of the way, the EIA system degrades recipients and puts up barriers to their independence. It’s no surprise that so many Manitobans view EIA negatively. That’s why Make Poverty History Manitoba is calling for the Province to replace it with a livable basic needs benefit that is adequate, portable and dignified.

Support for addressing poverty through jobs and employment should be undertaken through Community Economic Development, including social enterprise development, meaningful pathways to employment, and investing in fair and local economies.
