Chamber hosts workshop on poverty and low income

in Uncategorised by

The Lindsay Chamber of Commerce is hosting a series of workshops on welcoming diversity to Kawartha Lakes. On Jan. 16 the theme is poverty and low income, with facilitator Rachael Nicholls.

Nicholls is a sessional faculty member at Trent University, a doctoral candidate at OISE/University of Toronto, and a youth mentor at St. John’s Anglican Church. She views this opportunity just as she views her work in education — it is “not to transfer knowledge but to create the possibilities for the production and construction of knowledge” with the others.

Nicholls hopes this will be an opportunity for communal creation, self-discovery, and reflection. She grew up in Lindsay with her parents and two sisters and now resides in Peterborough with Elsa, her English bulldog.

The session runs from 9-11 a.m. at the City of Kawartha Lakes Family Health Team community room at 55 Angeline Street North, Lindsay. To register, go here.

  1. How great a workshop on poverty and low income and there is a charge of $ 75 for non members, is this also for the general public wanting to attend.

  2. This is a Chamber of Commerce event and so they have a ‘preferred rate’ for members, hoping that small businesses will see the value of a Chamber membership with discounts on workshops, networking breakfasts, etc.

    Anyone is welcome to attend, though at a bit higher rate, which raises money for Chamber activities. Just give the Lindsay and District Chamber of Commerce a call for more information.

  3. No one will be excluded for lack of ability to pay: please call the Lindsay and District Chamber of Commerce if you would like to attend. (705) 324-2393.
