In Solutions to Poverty in Manitoba, this report written discussed the challenges and opportunities the Manitoba government faces in fighting poverty after the recent deficit budget of 2010 of $555 million. Some of the recommendations in the report include:
– Working with more non-profits and small businesses to give some services that the government now provides.
– Encourage using small business creation and asset building even more to build a base of financial capital for low-income people so they won’t be in poverty.
The report also mentions Bologna Italy as an example of how a local government used market principles by using small businesses and non-profit organizations to offer essential services, that usually in Canada run by governments.
