Together We Can Overcome Poverty

Once every five years, New Brunswickers are asked to share their views on the issue of poverty and economic and social inclusion in New Brunswick through a public engagement process which includes a survey, public dialogues and a call for briefs.

Looking Back to Move Forward – A discussion paper that provides an overview of New Brunswick’s achievements in poverty reduction and economic and social inclusion over the past decade. Click here to read it.
