PSA: My Week on Welfare comes to Clayton Park

Join us for a screening of the documentary My Week on Welfare, as well as a panel discussion featuring individuals with lived experiences of being on welfare and individuals working within the system.

“My Week on Welfare” is a documentary about the state of the welfare system in Nova Scotia.  Filmmaker (and former welfare recipient) Jackie Torrens chronicles the stories of several welfare recipients.

This documentary looks at the reality of life on income assistance, and we invite you to share your reality.

This event is open to everyone. This is your night to use your voice.
