The Edmonton Social Planning Council (ESPC) welcomes the opportunity to provide these initial responses to the Policy Framework for Alberta Discussion Guide. These responses are based on our organization’s long track record of addressing and proposing solutions to poverty and low income challenges.

Given the very short timeframe in responding to the Discussion Guide, these responses are not intended to be definitive or address all of the areas that will be encompassed by the framework. Our responses focus mainly on the economic dimensions of poverty and low income. Our intent is to focus on practical and affordable solutions that will make a meaningful contribution to poverty reduction in our province.
