The Poverty Reduction Strategy Office of Toronto is now accepting applications from individuals who have lived experience with poverty to join the Lived Experience Advisory Group (LEAG).
Understanding that poverty affects people differently, this is an open call to everyone who can inform the implementation of the Poverty Reduction Strategy based on their firsthand experience with poverty.
The LEAG is a two year term beginning January 2017 and will include a two day orientation session, a two day training, monthly meetings and attendance and/or participation in local community meetings and activities.
All participants will be provided a two day orientation, training and skills development opportunities, recognition, TTC fare, child care and food, honorarium of $50/meeting and $100/full day activities, attendant care (upon request) as well as other activities as identified.
Please note that only residents of Toronto can apply and the deadline to submit the application form is December 3rd 2016.
