The next stage of public consultation to develop the Community Plan for Poverty Reduction will take the shape of a public workshop designed to allow participants to delve more deeply into the proposed Plan’s components.

The workshop is being presented by the Kingston Community Roundtable on Poverty Reduction, the United Way Serving Kingston Frontenac Lennox and Addington (KFL&A) and the City and is open to all interested members of the public. It is set for 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 27, at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, 53 Yonge St. Childcare and refreshments will be provided and transportation assistance is available on request.

Workshop participants will set goals, identify what is working well and review the results and key recommendations gathered from recent focus sessions and public consultation meetings.

The input from the workshop will be used to finalize the draft of the Community Plan for Poverty Reduction, a coordinated strategy will focus on improving quality of life while reducing the impacts of poverty on individuals, families and the community as a whole.
