The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is held annually on 17 October to provide:

  • an opportunity to acknowledge the effort and struggle of people living in poverty;
  • a chance for them to make their concerns heard; and
  • a moment to recognize that poor people are the first ones to fight against poverty.

The Town of Stony Plain strives to realize an end to poverty and homelessness whereby Stony Plain and area residents are enriched through a strong, healthy, connected community.

Details about our annual Poverty Awareness Month activities will be added to the Community Calendar every October.
