Raise the Rates

Raise the Rates is a coalition of community groups and organizations concerned with the level of poverty and homelessness in British Columbia. We have been campaigning for 10 years for a systemic solution to poverty: raising welfare and disability rates in BC.

We organize with people in poverty and allies to make this happen. Our specialty is in creative political action that changes the narrative of poverty in BC, and highlights the deep inequalities existing in BC.

Poverty is a legislated policy: take action with us to demand the government end poverty and homelessness in BC!
