The Alberta Child Poverty Report Spotlight: Lessons on Child Poverty during a Pandemic 2021

The Alberta Child Poverty Report is a yearly publication that highlights the plight of children and youth living without the resources to thrive and grow into healthy adults. Every year, the Child Poverty Report advocates for better social services and governmental assistance to give all children the opportunities they deserve.

This year’s report is titled Spotlight: Lessons on Child Poverty during a Pandemic. The report casts a light on how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting children and how it is exacerbating problems that were present long before the pandemic started in March 2020.

The Alberta Child Poverty Report is a collaboration between the Edmonton Social Planning Council, the Alberta College of Social Workers (ACSW), and Public interest Alberta (PIA). It is part of the Campaign 2000 coalition, a national movement that sought to end child poverty by the year 2000. Obviously, Canada failed to meet this objective and much work remains before poverty for children and youth is eradicated.
