CUPE BC donates $5,000 to Victoria’s Together Against Poverty Society

BURNABY - CUPE BC’s 56th annual convention was held in Victoria May 1-4, and featured a wide range of speakers and keynote presenters. On behalf of each speaker, CUPE BC made a donation to Victoria’s Together Against Poverty Society (TAPS), for a total donation of $5,000.

“TAPS does amazing work on behalf of Victoria residents experiencing poverty,” said CUPE BC Secretary-Treasurer Trevor Davies. “In addition to our ongoing annual support for the work that TAPS does, we’re very pleased, on behalf of all our delegates, and all of our more than 97,000 members across the province, to present this additional donation.”

TAPS provides free services to people living on low or no incomes, including income assistance advocacy, expertise with the Residential Tenancy Act, employment standards regulations, and services and assistance for people with disabilities.
