Good public policy matters and has been effective in reducing child poverty. Indeed, without government transfers over 2 million children would live in poverty. However, to date, policy inputs against poverty have been small and poverty reduction too limited. History has shown us that no one-off policy change can ensure no child goes hungry, is denied opportunity or spared the indignity of poverty. In order to meet its child poverty reduction target, the federal government must root out child and family poverty from every community in Canada by adopting a child and family poverty reduction lens on all spending, policy and program decisions. This report card provides a snapshot of child and family poverty today, outlines how poverty stalls children’s progress and potential and proposes policy solutions as a road map to guide eradication.
