Framework for Action

WPRC's ten aspirations for Winnipeg

The WPRC’s ten aspirations for Winnipeg are strongly interconnected such that achieving significant progress on any one aspiration will positively impact on the others.

The Winnipeg Poverty Reduction Council’s role has three components: to have and share knowledge about complicated issues, to use its influence to engage all sectors and communities, and to foster collaboration that breaks down silos, creates collective impact, and reduces poverty in Winnipeg.

Following the January 20th, 2015 WRPC meeting, the Steering Committee met, supported by a small working group, to consider the Council’s feedback and to develop a proposal for a revised Framework for Action: 2015-2020.

In June 2015, Council approved the Framework for Action: 2015-2020.
