/CNW/ - It has been 30 years since the federal government unanimously voted to end child poverty by the year 2000. Campaign 2000 will release its annual National Report Card on Tuesday, on January 14, 2020. The media release and full report will be available at www.campaign 2000.ca as of 7am.
This year we report on how far we have come over those decades, change in rates of poverty since the announcement of the federal poverty reduction strategy, and feature new analysis on the impacts of the first full year of the Canada Child Benefit on family incomes, and much more.
The national report card is released in coordination with several provincial report cards from our partners in British Columbia
, New Brunswick
, Nova Scotia
