Half a Million People Experience Food Insecurity in British Columbia, Says New Report
Northern British Columbia Especially Vulnerable
TORONTO, August 31, 2016 — Almost half a million British Columbians experienced some level of household food insecurity in 2011-2012, according to a new report from PROOF, a research group based at the University of Toronto.
Drawing on data from Statistic Canada’s Canadian Community Health Survey, the report finds over one in ten B.C. households struggling to put food on the table in 2011-12. Families with children under the age of 18 were at an even greater risk of food insecurity, with one in six B.C. children living in a food insecure household.

There has been a flurry of media coverage about our Gleaning Abundance Program, we hope this gets the word about about this fabulous program! Check out this article and TV interview we did recently. For more information about the program, check out GAP’s website.
The Kamloops Transportation Master Plan (TMP) is intended to guide the planning and implementation of transportation improvements over the next 10 to 20 years. Between now and 2035, our population is expected to grow from a population of 86,000 to 120,000. At the same time, the City has committed to significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions and has set transportation related sustainability targets.
Public input is essential to ensure the final Transportation Master Plan is created and supported by community members and is adopted by Council.
