Who

Our History

In March 2014 Edmonton City Council created the Mayor’s Task Force to Eliminate Poverty and initiated the formation of the Aboriginal Round Table (now called the Indigenous Circle).

EndPovertyEdmonton’s Strategy and Roadmap were approved by Edmonton City Council in 2016 and Council acknowledged that ending poverty was a profound act of reconciliation.

In 2017 EndPovertyEdmonton hired staff and the initiative began operating independently of the city.

You can find annual reports and guiding documents in Resources.
