Due to the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic, the Edmonton Social Planning Council (ESPC) is taking precautionary measures to do our part in slowing the spread of the disease.
The ESPC physical office will be closed effective March 16, 2020, until further notice. We will continue to work and serve our community and clients remotely. All of us at ESPC have the necessary resources to work remotely with little disruption to our scheduled project deliverables.
Please note that by working remotely, emails will be answered, but phone calls may take longer to respond too. We would recommend email or our website contact form as the quickest way to connect with us.
Additionally, all in-person ESPC events and meetings have been cancelled. We will be monitoring the situation and decide soon on the status of our Annual General Meeting and the scope of our 80th Anniversary celebrations.
* Please note that we are not a government department or direct service provider. We do not provide individuals with information about social benefit programs (i.e. AISH, workers compensation benefits, etc.). If you have questions about these services, please dial 211 or access online by clicking here. For assistance with provincial programs, Alberta Supports can help you access more than 30 programs and 120 community services https://www.alberta.ca/alberta-supports.aspx.
