New name for national anti-poverty organization

Posted on: February 5, 2009

"These changes are part of our repositioning for the strongest possible contribution to combating poverty, inequality and social exclusion in Canada. Our new name is meant to keep our focus squarely on the ultimate goal, and to inspire others. Our new logo is meant to suggest the rising above and out of poverty, to get above whatever one's poverty line might happen to be, and to then move forward with a better chance of fulfilling one's potential and promise as an individual and as a citizen."
