We’re providing the following materials to help you learn more about the data and statistics in the 2017 BC Child Poverty Report Card. We hope that this aids you in incorporating the information from the report card into your own communications materials and presentations, in order to educate as many people as possible about the current child poverty crisis and the solutions to reduce child poverty in BC.

Regional Factsheets

We have pulled data from our 2017 Child Poverty Report Card to create Regional Factsheets that are shareable in .pdf and .ppt files. The factsheets include individual regional poverty rates, as well as graphs that indicate comparisons between regional and BC data. We invite anyone to download the files and use them for presentations, conversations, or to share online.
