We are a small group of grade 6/7 students from Surrey, British Columbia and we have created this petition to raise awareness about child poverty in B.C, and in Canada. When we started learning about child poverty we were overwhelmed with the amount of information that we could find about children living in poverty in Canada. It just doesn't seem real that so many kids are growing up in poverty in Canada, a country perceived around the world as one rich in opportunities, resources, and voted as one of the best countries in the world to live.

Campaign 2000: Twenty-six years ago, the House of Commons unanimously voted to end child poverty by the year 2000, but more children and their families live in poverty today than in 1989 when they made this vote. Right now there are over 1 Million children in Canada living in poverty. This is NOT an acceptable number!

Please take the time to sign our petition to end child poverty in Canada
