The resources listed cover a wide range of topics for a broad section of our population. The intent is to inform as many people as possible and help them understand their options, available support, and tools to continue isolating, social distance, remain in quarantine, or access health care support. Due to the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic, the Edmonton Social Planning Council (ESPC) is taking precautionary measures to do our part in slowing the spread of the disease. The ESPC physical office will be closed effective March 16, 2020, until further notice. We will continue to work and serve our community and clients remotely. All of us at ESPC have the necessary resources to work remotely with little disruption to our scheduled project deliverables. Please note that by working remotely, emails will be answered, but phone calls may take longer to respond too. We would recommend email or our website contact form as the quickest way to connect with us. Additionally, all in-person ESPC events and meetings have been cancelled. We will be monitoring the situation and decide soon on the status of our Annual General Meeting and the scope of our 80th Anniversary celebrations. The COVID-19 pandemic is a rapidly changing issue, we recommend you stay informed, please refer to the Alberta Government website and the City of Edmonton website for local updates.
