The Poverty Task Force (PTF) formed out of the February 12, 2009, Poverty Symposium, hosted by United Way Social Planning Department.  Over 100 people met to discuss and learn more about poverty in Guelph and Wellington.  Key recommendations from the symposium included developing a cohesive poverty elimination strategy based on the examples of other Ontario cities, identifying “local champions” and community education.
