SFU Skoll Challenge Presentation: Mapping Income Assistance in BC

This presentation was produced by Anna Migicovsky and Kim Mackenzie, both LEDlab alumnae, as part of an entry in the 2017 Oxford Global Challenge. In the Challenge, entrants research an issue of their choice, then map the issue’s complex web of players and find opportunities for change.

That mapping can be in the literal, place-based sense, but more often it tends to be an illustration of the connections and movements going on behind the scenes.

In this entry, Anna and Kim illustrate the nature of employment and its relationship with support services in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside (DTES).
