Driving Poverty To New Lows

Every Canadian deserves a real chance at success, and the opportunity to build a better future for themselves and their families.

Since 2015, over 825,000 Canadians have been lifted out of poverty – including 300,000 children.

Justin Trudeau and the Liberal government are committed to ensuring that Canadian families have a fair chance at success by providing parents with more money to help with the high costs of raising their kids.

If you support the real progress we’ve made for Canadian children, then we need your help in October to keep moving forward.

Let’s work together to guarantee every child can have a bright future.
