Our Shared Goals
Extensive public consultations with the community and people experiencing poverty, along with stakeholders in government, business, the non-profit sector and academia led to the development of a series of strategic actions that guide the implementation of the Enough for All strategy including:

  • All Calgary communities are strong, supportive and inclusive
  • Everyone in Calgary has the income and assets needed to thrive
  • Everyone in Calgary can easily access the right supports, services and resources
