If you work with people in Canada living on low incomes, you can play a meaningful role in supporting access to benefits regardless of your expertise or sector.

Prosper Canada identified 36 barriers that individuals living on low incomes face when trying to access benefits. More than half of the known barriers (21 of 36) are at the system level, meaning that they are created by policies, practices or processes at the federal and provincial levels. The promising practices listed in this report mainly address these lived experience barriers. This is important work by community-based organizations and is necessary until real change occurs within the system.
