- CSPC Response to City of Victoria Proposed Grant Changes

26 May 2015 - 11:53am -- Mary Katharine Ross

 

To the citizens of Victoria,

In Victoria, the City Council is proposing to do away with multi-year funding for "fee for service" agencies that provide long term assistance with community development. Please join me in opposing this measure and review my own response to see if you can support similar input to engage@victoria.ca

- Communities across Canada are embracing a living wage

4 November 2014 - 3:53pm -- Mary Katharine Ross

Living Wage Canada LogoNovember 2-8, 2014 is Living Wage Week in Canada and the UK - the livinig wage is a global movement. Thirty cities in four provinces have engaged in local discussions on how to create living wage communities. 

In Canada today, more than 1.8 million employed people don’t earn enough at their jobs to pull themselves and their families above the poverty line: they are working and poor.  Paying employees a living wage can change that for millions of Canadians and employers in about 30 cities are set to do just that.
