Council then created the Poverty Reduction Task Group in 2022 to lead the implementing of the strategy, supported by $50,000 in funding received from the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM).
The Town is hosting a series of community Dinner & Dialogue events as part of the ongoing CommUNITY Together to End Poverty Hw-nuts’-ulwum (As One) Poverty Reduction Strategy implementation.
The first of the four events organized by the Town’s Poverty Reduction Task Group of local agencies is scheduled for Thursday, December 14 at 5:30 p.m. at Aggie Hall.
Ladysmith and Stz’uminus residents are invited to this free dinner to learn about the Town’s Poverty Reduction Strategy and continue the ongoing conversation on local solutions for improving affordability, equity and inclusion.
In partnership with the Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce, we are looking to host a four-part seminar series for employers, businesses and organizations in the Ladysmith/Stz’uminus area.
These sessions aim to offer training, education, and support to reduce barriers when recruiting, hiring, and retaining people earning a low income and/or seeking employment. Each seminar will include a guest/panel speaker(s) to share stories and expertise with an opportunity for discussions.
Funding for this has been made possible through provincial poverty reduction planning & action funds awarded to the Town of Ladysmith.
