Poverty Issues

More than 100,000 Edmontonians live in poverty with about 40% of them being children.

Edmontonians believe in helping and protecting one another, so we must work together to address poverty. For this reason, the Edmonton Social Planning Council has produced many documents with various partners to highlight the issue of Poverty in Greater Edmonton and the Province of Alberta.
