CPAN is determined to remind politicians of their promise made 24th November 1989 ‘To End Child Poverty by The Year 2000” We are hoping that you can help us by asking your children to voice their concerns using this poster contest. 

As Prime Minister Trudeau’s first career was teaching (which he loved) we intend to share all applicable posters with him!  This would make a statement to mark Canada’s 150th birthday!

Here are some resources to help you kick-start the discussion around poverty with your students.
