Public Consultations and Information Sessions
The City of Prince George is seeking public input that will inform actions aimed at reducing poverty and increasing understanding of how poverty affects the whole community. From February 11 to March 12, a public survey on poverty reduction is available at princegeorge.ca/getinvolved.
Participation in the survey will help the City to prioritize recommendations for action and advocacy aimed at reducing poverty that have been drafted by the City’s Select Committee on Poverty Reduction. The Select Committee was created to make recommendations to Mayor and Council about how Prince George can support implementation of TogetherBC, the Province’s poverty reduction strategy, which aims to reduce overall poverty in B.C. by 25% and child poverty by 50% by 2024.
All residents are welcome to fill out the City’s Poverty Reduction survey, which is available at the City’s public engagement hub at www.princegeorge.ca/getinvolved.
Starting next week, the City will be working with community partners and agencies to obtain feedback from diverse groups of residents, especially those with lived experience of poverty. In order to ensure accessibility and inclusion, paper surveys and phone calls will be available for those who may not be able to fill out the survey online.
Surveys and other public engagement opportunities, such as public hearings and opportunities to serve on City committees, are provided on the City’s public engagement hub: www.princegeorge.ca/getinvolved.
Residents who wish to receive information about this and future public consultation events and opportunities can also subscribe to receive email notifications from the City directly to their inbox (select "Public Consultations and Information sessions").
