Family Service Toronto provides leadership and coordination  for Campaign 2000: End Child and Family Poverty in Canada and Ontario Campaign 2000.

Campaign 2000

Campaign 2000 is a cross-Canada public education movement to build Canadian awareness and support for the 1989 all-party House of Commons resolution to end child poverty in Canada by the year 2000. Campaign 2000 began in 1991 out of concern about the lack of government progress in addressing child poverty.

Campaign 2000 is non-partisan in urging all Canadian elected officials to keep their promise to Canada’s children. Our coalition of 120 partners are committed to addressing the issue of child and family poverty and believe that the federal government has a responsibility to honour the all-party resolution to end child poverty.

Ontario Campaign 2000

Ontario Campaign 2000 works to increase public awareness of the levels and consequences of child/family poverty by publishing research on the indicators of child poverty and developing public education resources.

Ontario Campaign 2000 was established in 1997 and in November of that year, the first Ontario Report Card on Child Poverty was released, receiving wide media and public attention.  Since then, Ontario Campaign 2000 has published numerous Report Cards on Child and Family Poverty in Ontario, with discussion papers being released from time to time.
