Child Poverty in Alberta: A Policy Choice, not a Necessary Reality
The Alberta child poverty report is an annual report produced by the Alberta College of Social Workers, the Edmonton Social Planning Council, and Public Interest Alberta. It is designed to inform policy-makers, advocates, and decision-makers in their work to end child poverty and create an equitable Alberta for all.
This year’s report explores some of the current issues faced by children living in poverty, addressing household employment and access to basic needs. The authors explore topics such as specific interventions related to child care, mental health services, and children among Indigenous and visible minority communities, with general recommendations included throughout.
