Most Canadian believe Ottawa and the provincial governments aren’t doing enough to deal with increasing poverty in their communities, but there is little agreement on what the government should do to reverse this trend, according to a new poll by the Angus Reid Institute.

The poll, part of the institute’s in-depth look into poverty in Canada, also finds that more than seven-in-ten Canadians largely agree that poor people are poor because of circumstances beyond their control, rather than a lack of effort on their part.
