Current Issues

Here are GEA’s current Research Action Teams:

  • The Living Incomes Action Team focuses on efforts to increase access to job-training, expand the number of living wage jobs, and increase income supports for those unable to work.
  • The Mental Health Action Team focuses on increasing access to mental health and addiction recovery resources as well as other ways to reduce adverse stress.
  • The Community Building and Member Engagement Team focuses on increasing participation in faith, labour and civil sector organizations and assisting them in building respectful relationships and a strong sense of community.


**Rally your Members to Join the Movement to address Poverty, Living Wages and Mental Health**

Opportunity: Invite others in your organization to join you in supporting the campaign that GEA has launched in conjunction with End Poverty Edmonton to address Living Wage and Mental Health problems.

GEA’s new campaign video briefly presents the challenges and opportunities around these high impact problems.

We invite you and those you know to be part of the solution. This video can be easily shown during religious services, membership meetings and other events.

Please reply to this email with your interest in showing the video in your organization, congregation or community group.
