Winnipeg Harvest and the Social Planning Council of Winnipeg will jointly release the 2012 Acceptable Living Level (ALL) Report today.
The 2012 ALL Report is the result of more than a year of engaging with and listening to a low income panel of consultants, a chronic illness panel of consultants and people in the community.
The report sets out a budget of basic needs, such as food, clothing and shelter, and what they cost in Winnipeg for four family types. It also shows that working full-time at minmum wage jobs nor welfare are enough to provide the income needed for these basic requirements.
The report will be released at 10 a.m. at Winnipeg Harvest’s headquarters.
