With a $10.5 billion deficit, can Ontario really "realize our potential" to break the cycle of poverty even as food bank usage hits record highs? Can Ontario really end homelessness? That's the promise of a new poverty reduction initiative from Queen's Park. The Agenda gathers a range of experts to look at what it will take to transform poverty in this province.

Children's rights Wiki - from CRIN
http://wiki.crin.org/mediawiki/index.php
The Children's Rights Wiki assembles all information about children's rights in every country in one place. The purpose of the project is to make the huge volume of information that exists on children's rights more accessible, assist children's rights advocates in identifying persistent violations, and inspire collective action. This is a web-based, multi-lingual and interactive project.
