Global Facts and Figures: How Canada is Working for Poverty!

Canada has also been seen working to raise its name and to provide its inhabitants a quality way of living, keeping in view the global problem i.e. poverty. Here are some details which tell us how the Canadian Prime Minister is working for the cause of poverty.

“We will also lift more Canadians – including children and seniors – out of poverty.”

Neediness and injustice are not only issues for singular Canadians, all of Canada is influenced. For Canadians, especially the underprivileged, poverty makes it harder to stay and remain fit, and harder to discover and keep great work. For Canada, the costs of poverty, if we talk about the healthcare services costs and increasing demand for social help, are massive.  His arrangement and work is to make Canadians get out of neediness and poverty.

With greater Canada Child Benefit, poverty can be exempted. Tax-Free, attached to income and delivered each month, this advantage gives more prominent help to the individuals who require help most: single-parent families and low salary families. It can raise 315,000 kids out of neediness.

This ensures lifting a huge number of seniors out of poverty by expanding the Guaranteed Income Supplement for single low-salary seniors by 10 percent. This will give one million to the most important seniors of our country - who are frequently ladies - nearly $1,000 every year.

Additionally, the aim to invest in the social infrastructure, following strategies are adopted.

  • Interests in reasonable housing and senior offices

  • Construction of more new housing units and repair old ones

  • Helping the municipalities to keep rent-geared-to-income subsidies in co-ops

  • Giving communities the cash they require for Housing First activities to support poverty-stricken Canadians find stable houses.

Here are its global facts and figures:

  1. Nearly 1/2 of the world’s population — more than 3 billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day. More than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty — less than $1.25 a day.

  2. 1 billion children worldwide are living in poverty. According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty.

  3. 805 million people worldwide do not have enough food to eat. Food banks are especially important in providing food for people that can’t afford it themselves. Run a food drive outside your local grocery store so people in your community have enough to eat. Sign up for Supermarket Stakeout.

  4. More than 750 million people lack adequate access to clean drinking water. Diarrhea caused by inadequate drinking water, sanitation, and hand hygiene kills an estimated 842,000 people every year globally, or approximately 2,300 people per day.

  5. In 2011, 165 million children under the age 5 were stunted (reduced rate of growth and development) due to chronic malnutrition.

  6. Preventable diseases like diarrhea and pneumonia take the lives of 2 million children a year who are too poor to afford proper treatment.

  7. As of 2013, 21.8 million children under 1 year of age worldwide had not received the three recommended doses of vaccine against diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis.

  8. 1/4 of all humans live without electricity — approximately 1.6 billion people.

  9. 80% of the world population lives on less than $10 a day.

  10. Oxfam estimates that it would take $60 billion annually to end extreme global poverty--that's less than 1/4 the income of the top 100 richest billionaires.

  11. The World Food Program says, “The poor are hungry and their hunger traps them in poverty.” Hunger is the number one cause of death in the world, killing more than HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined.
