Social and Economic Well-Being Plan
Well-being means having what we need to create and maintain the lives we want for ourselves. Well-being includes our health, financial security and enjoying what we do every day. It also means having positive relationships, and feeling like we belong in our community.

The Provincial Government is developing a renewed approach to addressing poverty, as well as increasing focus on well-being for children, youth and their families. There is a close link between reducing poverty and improving well-being. Therefore, this work will be combined under a Social and Economic Well-Being Plan.

The Department of Children, Seniors, and Social Development is inviting members of the public, organizations and interest groups, to provide feedback to assist in the development of this Plan.
