How can Provinces provide protection for all

The webinar Lift the Floor: How Provinces Can Provide Protection for All is the first of the 2020 Digital Convening Series, launched by the Broabent Institute in partnership with the Douglas-Coldwell Foundation.

Provinces have a critical role to play in supporting people during this time.
