We release What's on the MOVES on Friday. Our goal is to share information about upcoming events, agency news and relevant announcements with the DC MOVES mailing list. If you have information to share through this bulletin, please contact the DC MOVES Coordinator  Carol Good.
DC MOVES Logo coming soon

For those of you who are prompted by visual clues, consider this a "heads-up". The Leadership Table has approved a new "Made in Dufferin" DC MOVES logo.
We were fortunate to fit into Kim van Oosterom's tight schedule this summer. Her firm, Wallflower Design, is involved in the production of the next issue of In The Hills.
A new logo is part of our new website launch that is targeted for September. We will be providing a sneak peak at the next DC MOVES Forum on September 15. Please mark your calendars - registration is now open.

Income Inequality in Ontario, 2000-2015
A new paper from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives' Ontario Office examines income inequality from 2000 to 2015, with a focus on families raising children. The data reveals that Ontario is becoming more polarized as middle and working class families see their share of the income pie shrinking while upper middle and rich families take home even more.
