McMaster Community Poverty Initiative
Thanks for visiting the MCPI! We are currently going through a transition that will make us a bit slow in responding to emails or other queries. The Steering Committee will be meeting again starting in late August/early September 2016 to continue the work of pushing to end poverty.
Education - Advocacy - Research
Who We Are
The McMaster Community Poverty Initiative is the title for a group of students, faculty and staff dedicated to research, advocacy and education and action related to poverty reduction. Together with our partners in the Hamilton community, we strive to use knowledge for social change.
It will bring together people from the university (faculty, staff and students) and from organizations in the community who work in pursuit of a more equitable and just society. It will strive to involve people who live in poverty in all facets of its work.
Its work and direction will be guided by the expertise of communities and individuals knowledgeable about what it means to be poor and to live in Hamilton.
