One key method of ending poverty is to create economic opportunities for those living in poverty. More than ever, we need an economy that works for everyone, one that provides access to good jobs, higher pay, business opportunities and other benefits that will help to eliminate poverty in our community.
From our work, expertise and ongoing research we understand that to create economic opportunities for all Edmontonians requires a systemic approach. Our goal is simple, to ensure that current and future economic planning and strategy is focused on eliminating poverty. We are giving particular attention to living wage, ensuring that the City and other institutions
are incorporating social procurement into their processes, and policy and planning is focused on creating economic opportunities for everyone, not just those at the top.
