About Me:

All citizens, community organizations, local business, government agencies, and communities are encouraged to participate in their local Community Inclusion Network. The 12 Community Inclusion Networks will develop local poverty reduction plans and work together to deliver programming tailored to local needs. The financial resources and support is being provided to the networks by the Economic and Social Inclusion Corporation.

About My City: Fredericton

Fredericton is the seat of provincial government, home to two universities and several colleges, with a budding IT sector. Poverty is hidden, with most of the population believing that the social safety net adequately takes care of any issues
