Examines trends in population, household formation, labour force characteristics, income levels, educational attainment and poverty, for Winnipeg's inner city and for Winnipeg as a whole, for the period 1981-1996, and in some cases, 1971-1996. Discusses the impact of suburban sprawl and inner city decay, as well as inner city unemployment rates and educational attainment. Concludes that poverty is high and growing in Winnipeg. Poverty is highly concentrated, both geographically in Winnipeg's inner city, and among particular populations, especially single-parents (7 out of 8 of which are female) and Aboriginal people. Recommendations are presented as the principles which ought to drive a Winnipeg inner city anti-poverty strategy.

Discusses the trends in low-cost housing provision in Canada, Britain and the US touching on the instruments for financing low-cost housing provision and developing the politics of low-cost housing. Concludes with the suggestions: that housing organizations in Canada adopt new financing mechanisms for low-cost housing provision; that they enhance linkages with other organizations; and that they develop methods of work that place a priority on empowering residents. It further suggests that strategies attempt to link low-cost housing with other interests in order to broaden its political constituency.
