This week, City Council unanimously approved a Vision Vancouver motion to make Vancouver a Living Wage employer.
This is an important step forward. Vancouver can become the largest Living Wage employer in the region. We're demonstrating how cities can show leadership on reducing income inequality and poverty.
Support for a Living Wage was a Vision campaign commitment. Thank you for standing with us, and saying that fair wages and economic opportunity matters.
We've got more work ahead of us. But when you combine Living Wage with our other actions – 1000 new childcare spaces, expanding the VSB's breakfast program, launching a Rent Bank for renters in crisis - we're taking specific steps to reduce poverty and inequality in Vancouver.
Thanks for your support,
