Poverty study finds high housing need in Trail, minimum wage far below living wage

In partnership with Selkirk College, the Skills Centre is releasing research to support the development of a poverty reduction strategy for the Lower Columbia Region.

The Surviving, Not Thriving report covers several topics from income and employment, to food security, housing, early childhood vulnerability, transportation, and recreation.

“The indicators in this report provide insight into poverty in our region,” said Jan Morton, executive director of the Skills Centre.
