About this presentation:
Since 2008, the Edmonton Social Planning Council, Public Interest Alberta, and the Alberta College of Social Workers have been releasing child poverty reports. On an annual basis, this report informs the public on the effects of poverty in Alberta, current efforts by the government to reduce poverty, and recommend ways in which they can improve in these areas going forward. In this Lunch & Learn, we will dissect the latest data, demystify the latest developments and advocacy efforts in poverty reduction, and offer a way forward to finally end child poverty in Alberta.
