Make Poverty History Manitoba formed in 2008 out of a multi-sectoral collaborative coalition made up of approximately 30 Winnipeg organizations from the business, education, student, Aboriginal, newcomer, labour, women’s, health, and disability communities and agencies. This coalition evolved out of an early group in 2004, including the Women’s Health Clinic, the Social Planning Council of Winnipeg, Prairie Women’s Health Centre of Excellence and other organizations initiating discussions in the community about anti-poverty legislation.
See our 2008 discussion document: The Time for Patience is Over: Toward a Poverty Reduction Plan for Manitoba.
