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.
Your donation helps us do our work. It keeps our social research current and comprehensive. It allows us to take on bigger projects and make a greater impact in the community. It strengthens our voice—your voice, and the voices of those who lack the opportunity to speak for themselves.
