The Edmonton Social Planning Council is an independent, non-profit, non-partisan social research organization, with registered charitable status. Our focus is on social research within the vulnerable sectors of the community. We are dedicated to encouraging the adoption of equitable social policy, supporting the work of other organizations who are striving to improve the lives of people in our community, and educating the public regarding the social issues that impact them daily.
