Many people consider jobs to be a critical part of addressing poverty in Canada. But not all jobs actually help people out of poverty, and not all jobs are accessible to people living in poverty or precarity. This webinar will explore what kinds of jobs and employment standards are needed to effectively address poverty in a way that is equitable and sustainable, particularly in the context of climate change and intersecting forms of ongoing systemic oppression.
