Abstract: The Way We Live: Edmonton’s People Plan was approved by City Council on July 7, 2010. This 10-year strategic plan redefines local government as a caring entity that creates a diverse and inclusive city by connecting people, creating communities where people can age in place and actively nurturing an arts, culture and athletic community. The plan advances The Way Ahead: City of Edmonton’s Strategic Plan 10-year goal of improving Edmonton’s livability and integrates with, complements, and adds to the City of Edmonton’s other long-range strategic plans — The Way We Grow and The Way We Move. The Way We Live: Edmonton’s People Plan acknowledges the municipal government’s role in bringing people together to create a civil, socially sustainable and caring society where people have opportunities to thrive and realize their potential in a safe, attractive city. Edmonton, like other cities, often goes beyond its role as a municipal service provider. As the order of government closest to residents, the City is often asked to actively partner and advocate with other organizations and other orders of government to address issues outside of its scope of responsibility such as housing, health care and education. The Way We Live: Edmonton’s People Plan helps clarify the role the City has in quality of life issues. Throughout the design, development and implementation of people services, the City of Edmonton consults and works with residents and community groups to gain their views.
