National Council of Welfare

The National Council on Welfare (NCW) is a citizens’ advisory body to the Minister of Social Development Canada on matters of concern to low-income Canadians. Established in 1969, the Council advises the Minister on the needs and problems of low-income Canadians, and on programs and policies that affect their welfare. The Council communicates directly with the Minister, influences public opinion, and provides a vehicle through which the public can make its concerns known to the government.

The Council achieves its mandate through publishing research reports, direct communication with the Minister of Social Development, meetings, and responding to enquiries from researchers, the media, and the public. The Council focuses on poverty and social issues, publishing several reports each year on these specific topics. Other issues the NCW has explored in the past include child benefits, the tax system, employment programs, and health care benefits.
