A Profile of Poverty in Edmonton: Update 2017

The two years since ESPC published A Profile of Poverty in Edmonton have been challenging ones for the city of Edmonton and its residents.

This report updates many of the poverty trends and challenges identified two years within the context of broader social and economic trends in our community. This profile updates the actions the City could take within its jurisdiction to help work towards eliminating poverty and in keeping with the Poverty Roadmap approved by City Council.

This profile update provides data and analysis to answer the following questions:

  • What is the overall picture of poverty in Edmonton, and how has it changed in the past two years?
  • How does poverty vary across age, gender, and households in the city? What trends are we seeing among different population groups?
  • Who is impacted most by poverty? What population groups are at higher risk of experiencing poverty than others? (i.e., Indigenous people, recent immigrant/refugees, low income workers, women children and youth.)
  • What are the emerging trends impacting poverty in Edmonton or influencing the work on eliminating poverty?
