Prosperity Gateways: Cities for Financial Empowerment (CFE) Edmonton

City of Edmonton (CoE) and Prosper Canada  
 
October 2018 to December 2020   
 
Prosper Canada is partnering with the City of Edmonton (CoE) on the Prosperity Gateways -  Cities for financial empowerment (CFE) initiative which aims to combat poverty by expanding financial empowerment supports for people living on low incomes.   Prosper Canada will work with the City of Edmonton to:  
  
  • identify opportunities to integrate financial empowerment (FE) interventions into some of CoE’s existing services co-design a solution to improve the financial well-being of residents, and  
  • develop an implementation plan.   
These financial empowerment activities could range from providing financial education, coaching/ counselling, tax clinics, to help accessing income benefits. The aim is that integrated FE solutions will be sustainable, will measurably increase the financial well-being of residents living on low incomes, and will help the CoE to reduce poverty in Edmonton.    
  
Prosper Canada’s Prosperity Gateways initiative is supported by the Maytree Foundation, TD Bank Group, and the Government of Canada’s Social Development Partnerships Program.
