Report on Acceptable Living Released Today

February 16, 2012 7:09 AM | News

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.
