Meeting the Basic Needs of Edmontonians

Due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the population of Edmontonians whose basic needs are at risk has grown. These Edmontonians live paycheck to paycheck, and in today’s reality, job security is hard to come by. As a city, we need to do all that we can - within our means and mandate - to enable a life of dignity for our most vulnerable Edmontonians.

The Problem

There are many Edmontonians whose basic needs are not being met, including regular access to water, food, shelter, and clothing. Without consistent access to these essentials, people are unable to survive, let alone thrive in our city.

 

The Policy

Make a noticeable difference in the day-to-day lives of those who need it most by bringing the city’s best assets, effort, and commitment forward.

  • Provide the essentials
  • Remove the additional burdens
  • Land and advocacy to support housing
  • Enable and support collective impact

 

The Outcome

An Edmonton that works for everyone - no matter a person’s beliefs, origins, circumstances, or what part of the city they live in - and includes Edmontonians that face the challenges of living in poverty or not having a home.
