Poverty's Changing Landscape

Below is a video created by Scott W. Allard, a professor in the Evans School of Public Policy & Governance and the author of the 2017 book “Places in Need: The Changing Geography of Poverty.”

The video provides a short overview of some of the issues facing suburban communities in the United States; however, several of the issues mentioned in the video are also seen around the world. 

In November, the INS has speakers Paul Hunter and John Stapleton in to speak about the growing issue of suburban poverty. Suburban poverty is present and growing in the GTHA -  as described by John Stapleton - in England - as described by Paul Hunter - and is also seen in the United States - as per Scott Allard.
