End Poverty in a Generation: A Strategy The EndPovertyEdmonton Strategy aims to end poverty in Edmonton, not to merely manage it or help people cope with it. The strategy builds a strong case for ending poverty on three fronts: the economic argument, the human rights case and the public opinion approach. The priorities identified address poverty by responding to urgent and immediate needs, removing barriers to change, and tackling the root causes of poverty. While there are no quick fixes to end poverty, this strategy offers actions that Edmontonians can take to realize an immediate impact.
