Brandon Poverty Compass

Brandon Poverty Compass

The Poverty Report attempts to provide a comprehensive image of what poverty is in Brandon. Given the existing work and research that is being done in the community, Statistics Canada, and many other organizations, there is no shortage of quality information on poverty and its indicators in Brandon. However, no one report has yet to cohesively amalgamate this information into one report to benefit local decision-makers and poverty-serving organizations. 

Data has been amalgamated from Statistics Canada, Economic Development Brandon, and many other sources. Where Brandon specific information wasn’t available, interviews with local stakeholders and individuals with lived experience have been used to supplement provincial data. Overall, a collaborative approach was taken whereby the emphasis was placed on creating an ongoing dialogue with community members and organizations to provide the fullest picture of poverty.
