Transcript of Poverty

Poverty Background Poverty`s Presence in Canada Effect on the economy Why Poverty is an Issue and Statistics Concerns on how to eliminate Poverty Opinions - Poverty is the state of being extremely poor.
- 25,000 people die of hunger or hunger related causes everyday meaning one person every 3.5 seconds.
- There is poverty all around the world even in the most wealthy countries.
- Poverty affects 3 million canadians and 600,000 of them are children. - Their are 1 in 10 Canadians that are now considered poor, meaning 10% of canadians live in poverty.
- Poverty has an affect on taxes because of the government funded programs for homes and shelters that we essentially pay for
- It tarnishes the reputation of the country
- A lot of Canadians are left jobless leading to failure in the economy (ending the cycle)
- Once their is no money going around in the economy it may lead to an economic downfall - Poverty is not easily eliminated from the economy
- As individuals we can only do so much, it is up to the federal government to take action and respond to poverty
- The government has the ability to change policies and structures that can help those living in poverty
- Provide more jobs therefore Canadians wont be left jobless, leading to a stable income
- Canada has already been taking part in anti-poverty foundations in each province. We believe poverty does not put Canada's name
in a good place. It shows the lack of a stable economy
with all of the negative factors involved like unemployment, decrease in GDP, people living on the streets, unfair living conditions etc. If poverty were to be reduced the government would have to step it up. Nobody wants to be poor and everyone deserves a fair living in our country. - Of the 3 million people living in poverty in Canada the people who are most likely to be living in poverty are:
- Seniors, people with disabilities, recent immigrants, children, aboriginal canadians and lone parents.
- 1/10 children are poor in Canada
- 770,000 people in Canada use food banks and 40% are children. - In dollar terms the loss in Canada alone is 72- 86 billion dollars
- Systematic poverty is the root cause of many health and social problems in Canada
- The more poverty the lower the country`s total GDP
- The more people living in poverty the more the unemployed rate will be
- Studies show that an increase in 1,000$ in annual income to the poorest 20% Canadians would lead to 10,000 less long term illnesses, so we would save around 6-8 billion dollars on medicine and health care treatments. Advantages & Disadvantages - Gives Canada the image of a Low income country
- Reduces immigrants
- Tax money goes towards the Governments anti poverty foundation
- Lowers the country's GDP
- Increase the unemployment rate in Canada
- A lot of the money is lost in the economy
-Children are homeless Works Cited -"Econosystemics." World Poverty Economics n.pag. Web. 28 May 2013. <http://econosystemics.com/AphetaBlog/?p=454>."Canada Without Poverty ." Cost of Poverty n.pag.
