Grande Prairie is not unique from other communities in that poverty and its effects can pose a challenging obstacle in the journey towards sustainability. In recognition of the need to address poverty within the community, Grande Prairie’s Community Action to End Poverty (CAEP) Committee was established in 2012. Through CAEP, the foundation for action has been initiated. A vision and mission have been developed; community partnerships have been formed and collaborative discussion fostered; specific research has also been conducted. CAEP wants to build upon this foundation by strengthening understanding and awareness of poverty and its impacts within Grande Prairie and generating support for actions that will lead to real change within the community.
