In search of the lost billions. Every year the states lose billions of dollars in taxes because wealthy people and multinational companies hide their wealth in tax havens. Every lost dollar is a misopportunity to fight against poverty and inequality, here as elsewhere.

If you received 1 billion dollars to fight against poverty and inequality, what would you do? Through its exhibition Oxfam-Québec invites you to discover the initiatives for change and hope that she leads to fight against poverty and inequality. Mathieu-Étienne Gagnon (photo), Guillaume Internoscia, Alexandre Morin-Laprise and Simon Trepanier picture the work of our teams together with local organizations that work with young people and women.
