Edmonton Vital Signs is an annual check-up conducted by Edmonton Community Foundation, in partnership with Edmonton Social Planning Council, to measure how the community is doing. This year we will also be focusing on individual issues, Vital Topics, that are timely and important to Edmonton. The first topic is Women in Edmonton. In light of the #Metoo movement, International Women’s Day, and the fact that Edmonton has been at the bottom of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives list of “The Best and Worst Places to be a Woman in Canada” for the past 5 years, our first topic is a snapshot of the issues affecting Women in Edmonton.
