End Poverty Action Guide for Religious and Spiritual Communities


Action Guide3_featureThe Anglican Diocese of Edmonton, Capital Region Housing Interfaith Housing Initiative and EndPovertyEdmonton (EPE) have collaborated on a new resource for Edmonton’s religious and spiritual communities.

The End Poverty Action Guide, funded by the Anglican Foundation of Canada, is full of inspiring stories, resources and calls to action.

EPE is a new community entity, co-chaired by Bishop Jane Alexander and Dr. Jeffrey Bisanz, launched in late 2016 to steward the bold vision to end poverty in a generation. In December, Edmonton City Council unanimously supported investment to activate a 5-year community road map. The six Game Changers identified in the EPE Road Map, which aims to lift 10,000 Edmontonians out of poverty in the next five years, are:

  • Eliminate Racism
  • Livable Incomes
  • Affordable Housing
  • Accessible and Affordable Transit
  • Affordable Child Care
  • Access to Mental Health Services and Addictions Support.
