New report highlights how poverty exists in each one of Calgary’s 14 wards

22 July 2021

Watch CityNews Calgary's interview and read the news story about how the Calgary Municipal Ward Poverty Profiles Report and interactive tool allows Calgarians to find important information related to poverty in each of Calgary's 14 Wards.

“So you can go into the ward poverty profiles and you can click on your ward. When you click on your ward what you’ll see is a comparison of how people in your ward are doing to the rest of Calgary,” said Reid. “So, you can see what transportation looks like, how many calls somebody made to 211 to get food resources.”

Poverty profiles aim to help voting Calgarians, and candidates, understand their surrounding area better.
