Understanding Systems: The 2021 report of the National Advisory Council on Poverty
Canada’s National Advisory Council on Poverty’s second Annual Report, Understanding Systems, is the first report to provide a glimpse into poverty since COVID-19.

- Prevention and early intervention
- Income from employment and government benefits
