There is no clear definition of poverty in the Canadian Charter of Human Rights. The challenge people experience is the constant inflation of goods and services i.e. food, transportation and rent, and their income not increasing inline with their basic needs.
Manitobans for Human Rights (MHR) has taken a unique and innovative approach to form their Steering Committee. The committee will include individuals from community groups representing different human rights issues. Together the members of the MHR Steering Committee will collaborate, learn from one another, and then as a group, prioritize one specific issue that will draw on their mutual resources, strengths and contacts to bring about meaningful change.
