Poverty in Surrey: The Plan
Poverty Reduction Plan
The Poverty Reduction Plan provides a comprehensive set of recommendations to move towards the eradication of poverty in Surrey. The Plan was developed as a part of the Poverty Reduction Project and focuses on four policy areas:
The focus is on four policies areas rather than vulnerable population groups so that we can make a difference for all low-income people. The Plan includes 19 priorities and 75 recommendations. It is primarily focused on specific actions the City of Surrey and local community groups can take to tackle poverty. Implementation of the Plan will be led by Vibrant Surrey (Website. New window.). The Plan was endorsed by Council on July 9, 2012 and we are looking forward to playing a role in implementation and participating in further collaboration with Vibrant Surrey and other community partners.
