This book is unlike any other on the topic. Poverty and Policy in Canada provides a unique perspective on poverty and its importance to the health and quality of life of Canadians. This original volume considers a range of issues that will be of great interest to a variety of audiences.

Throughout the book, particular emphasis has been placed on the lived experiences of poverty.

"This volume explores social and political forces that conspire to allow poverty to continue unabated. At the simplest level, poverty's sheer invisibility keeps it off the national radar. That's why Professor Raphael's work is so necessary. Poverty and Policy in Canada will strengthen our struggle to make poverty visible, to thereby make it politically real, and ultimately to make poverty history."
-Jack Layton, Leader, New Democratic Party of Canada
