Territorial Anti-Poverty Initiative

The Territorial Anti-Poverty Initiative is guided by Building on the Strengths of Northerners; A Strategic Framework toward the Elimination of Poverty in the NWT, published in June 2013.

The Strategic Framework outlines the five priorities areas set by Aboriginal Governments, NGOs, communities, members of the No Place for Poverty Coalition, and the GNWT:

Through these five Pillars, organizations and sectors across NWT are working to reduce and eliminate poverty through their own action plans and projects.  For a detailed look at how these projects and plans work together, see the Anti-Poverty Strategy logic model or visit our 2014-2015 Project Map showing where activities took place.

To help monitor activities and track our collective progress, the GNWT is creating a set of performance measures for the Anti-Poverty Strategy. Check them out here, and send us your thoughts at anti-poverty@gov.nt.ca.
