The Poverty Task Force is built on a framework that aims to promote dialogue, information sharing, and collaboration. Our framework supports three types of groups – action groups, working groups, and ad-hoc groups.
Action Groups – These are issue-focused collaborative groups that have a pulse on what is happening locally, provincially, and nationally regarding food security, housing security, income security, and access to affordable recreation. All are public groups and encourage membership from all different sectors of our community. Click the following links to learn more about each of our Action Groups:
- Food Access Working Group (Guelph-Wellington Food Round Table)
- Wellington-Guelph Housing Committee
- Income Security Action Group
- in motion Guelph-Wellington-Dufferin (Access to Affordable Recreation)
Working Groups – These are collaborative tables that provide support to the general Poverty Task Force (PTF) and the Action Groups. These groups include the Steering Committee, the Research & Policy Working Group, and Community Voices.
Ad-Hoc Groups – Not every issue that arises fits with one of our Action or Working Groups and some require an expanded response. In such cases, the PTF will strike an ad-hoc group that will come together to work on specific task and will dissolve after the task is completed.
