Where We’re Going

We will get there by ensuring that:

How will we know we’ve achieved our goals, by arriving at the following priority outcomes:

  • By 2023, 95% of all people living in Calgary are at or above Statistics Canada’s Low-Income Cut-off (LICO) rates
  • By 2023, 90% of all people living in Calgary are at or above 125% of Statistics Canada’s Low-Income Cut-off (LICO) rates
  • By 2018, Calgarians consider reducing poverty to be a high priority.

LICO (Statistics Canada’s Low-Income Cut-off) is the income threshold below which a family devotes a larger share of its income on the necessities of food, shelter and clothing than the average family. It is commonly referred to as the poverty line.
