Peel Poverty Reduction Committee - Governance Structure


In 2019, staff conducted a stakeholder analysis to build on, and support the implementation of the Peel Poverty Reduction Committee’s (PPRC) governance structure which was proposed in the 2018-2028 Peel Poverty Reduction Strategy. In January 2020, all the action tables within the new governance structure successfully convened and through a co-design process the tables developed their Terms of Reference. This new structure enables the PPRC to be more strategic, action-oriented, and operate more effectively as the Committee collectively implements the outcomes of the strategy, drives change and develops cross sectoral solutions.

The seven action tables that drive the implementation of the poverty strategy are:

  • Lived Experience Roundtable
  • Advocacy and Awareness Roundtable
  • Systems Roundtable
  • Income Security and Economic Opportunity Implementation Taskforce
  • Well-being and Social Inclusion Implementation Taskforce
  • Steering Committee
  • Research, Policy and Evaluation Working Group

At each of the action tables, there is representation from other partner tables/networks such as Peel Food Action Council (PFAC), Peel Community Benefits Network, the Hunger Relief Network, and Peel Newcomer Strategy Group (PNSG) to ensure strategic alignment and identify further opportunities for partnership.
