The ESPC provides the human services sector and the citizens of Edmonton with community-based research and analysis on social issues that impact the Edmonton area. Our research typically focuses on low-income issues, including:

  • poverty
  • homelessness
  • affordable housing
  • wages, incomes and wealth
  • employment and labour market
  • government income supports
  • social determinants of health

 This should be a more descriptive explanation with links to actual articles and media coverage.
