"Poverty By Postal Code" Presentation

This Power Point presentation accompanies audio files. Hamilton has large neighbourhood disparities with concentrated areas of marginalized people, which often leads to a self-perpetuating “deprivation amplification”. Place-based policy has great potential to target concerns in defined areas by specifically addressing social problems, individual disadvantages, and neighbourhood disparities. While there are rationales both for and against place-based policy, Canada should learn from early-adopters (e.g. UK) to reduce the gap between deprived communities and the national average.
