The Canadian Poverty Institute is pleased to announce the launch of a new project, the Justice Sector Coordination Research Project.
With funding from the Law Foundation of Ontario, this project will examine the justice sector service system in Alberta to identify barriers to service coordination and integration and develop recommendations for more effective service integration.
The purpose of the project is to enhance the coordination of justice services in order to increase access to justice for vulnerable Albertans.
Launching in April 2017, the Canadian Poverty Hub will be an online repository of relevant research on the causes and impacts of poverty as well as policies and best practices in poverty prevention and reduction.
The Poverty Hub will provide a searchable database for researchers, practitioners and government policy officials to access current research on a range of poverty related issues.
