This case study explores the process by which EndPovertyEdmonton is helping to integrate social procurement into how the community does business.
Social procurement is about increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of government budgets by leveraging spending to achieve targeted social and economic goals. As a social procurement champion, Edmonton creates economic opportunities for those living in poverty, catalyzes the whole community to understand a new way of doing business and supports a stronger future for all.
By keeping dollars local, leveraging existing budgets and building local capacity and skills, Edmonton is strengthening their community and is moving closer to their goal of ending poverty in a generation.
