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.

Presents information about the extent and depth of women's poverty in Saskatchewan, explores some of the reasons why poverty is more common among women than men, and examines the implications of female poverty within the framework of the Population Health Promotion Model, with particular emphasis on the determinants of health, life stages and child poverty. The Women and Poverty Project researched issues related to specific groups of women including: Northern women, rural/farm women, women of Aboriginal ancestry, immigrant women, visible minority women, women with disabilities, and senior women. It tested and demonstrated that the participatory research and development process developed for phase one of the project can be applied to a variety of communities by several facilitators. This report includes recommendations made within the context of the Population Health Promotion Model for concrete actions that will improve the lives of Saskatchewan women who live in poverty, with particular attention on the role of Health Canada, through initiatives such as the Health Promotion Contribution Program and Population Health Strategy. These recommendations are organized into the themes of strengthening community action, building healthy public policy (this includes the areas of employment, social assistance, cost of liveing, spousal and child support, pensions, and education), creating supportive environments, developing personal skills, and reorienting health services.

Review, Network Fall/Winter 2001/02: This book came out of a project, funded by the Prairie Women’s Health Centre of Excellence, which brought together fifteen low-income mothers in Saskatoon of preschool-aged children, who had taken part in programs like collective kitchens and parenting groups. It documents the barriers faced by low-income mothers and challenges the negative stereotypes too often associated with "welfare mothers."
