Maple Leaf Centre for Action on Food Security commits $600K to Prosper Canada

benefits-1751830

The Maple Leaf Centre for Action on Food Security (“The Centre”) is contributing $600,000 over three years to assist Prosper Canada, a national charity, to enhance and expand the reach of its Benefits wayfinder, an innovative online platform that helps Canadians with low incomes to identify and access government benefits. The tool is easy to use and provides customized benefit recommendations based on the life circumstances of each user.

“Every year, billions of dollars in benefits available to Canadians with low incomes go unclaimed because people experience hurdles in filing their taxes, lack information about benefit entitlements or have trouble accessing them,” said Sarah Stern, who leads the centre. “Our partnership with Prosper Canada is a direct means to reduce food insecurity among Canadians with low incomes by increasing their income and ability to afford food.”
