Winnipeg Street Census 2015

By giving a few hours of your time, you will be taking action towards understanding who and how many people are homeless in Winnipeg.

The Winnipeg Street Census is a survey of people experiencing homelessness on October 25-26. It will tell us:

• Housing and service needs in Winnipeg

• How we can prevent homelessness in Winnipeg

• The funding and policy changes needed to end homelessness in Winnipeg

• Over time, it will tell us if we are having success ending homelessness

Children's Health & Environment Partnership

The Social Planning Council (SPCW) and the Manitoba EcoNetwork have supported the Child Health and Environment Partnership (CHEP) for the last six years. The program was launched after a conference in 2003 that brought a range of health workers together who were concerned about potentially harmful environmental factors on children. The program sought to document and educate stakeholders, ultimately seeking to change public behaviour in dealing with the environmental risks in food, packaging, children's toys and other products that could contain potentially harmful ingredients.

Campaign 2000 to End Child & Family Poverty

Campaign 2000 is a non-partisan, cross-Canada coalition of more than 120 national, provincial and community organizations committed to working together to end child and family poverty in Canada. Campaign 2000 evolved out of an all party resolution passed unanimously in the House of Commons in November 1989, which called for the elimination of child poverty in Canada by the year 2000. "This House...seeks to achieve the goal of eliminating poverty among Canadian children by the year 2000."
