New Brunswick's 2021 Child Poverty Report Card

Thirty-two years ago, the Canadian House of Commons unanimously resolved to eliminate child poverty by 2000. However, in 2021, child poverty persists in communities from coast to coast. The Human Development Council releases an annual report card in partnership with Campaign 2000 to shine a light on the current state of child poverty in New Brunswick. Similar provincial and territorial report cards are written by a network of organizations committed to poverty reduction and eradication across the country. These documents are a reminder of a resolution and promise to Canadian children that has not yet been fulfilled.
