Yes, Mr. Chair.
I just wanted to reassure my colleague.
Not only does the government have plans, but it will also produce public reports.
First, based on Canada's Poverty Reduction Strategy, the government has already set reduction targets of 20% by 2020 and 50% by 2030. Canada's long-term target of reducing poverty by 50% by 2030 reflects the government's commitment to the first sustainable development objective of reducing by 50% the proportion of men, women and children living in poverty.
Finally, I would like to add that the strategy establishes a National Advisory Council on Poverty, which will report annually and publicly on the progress made in reducing poverty in Canada.
