The Quebec government unveiled a $3 billion anti-poverty plan on Sunday, drawing criticism from advocacy groups who said it targets too narrow a group of people to truly make a dent.

Government officials said their aim is to raise 100,000 Quebecers out of poverty by 2023. Referring to the plan as “first steps towards establishing a basic income,” the government announced measures that it said would help people who have been unable to obtain employment do so.
