Canadian Programs

We also have a host of Edmonton-based activities designed to support our international placements as well as advocate for political and social reform that we believe will aid our development programs.

Some of the events that EWB Edmonton participates in are:

1) Spring Gala

Each year EWB Edmonton hosts a spring gala for our members, corporate sponsors and the public. Last year’s Wabonwa event was a great success and EWB is planning and even bigger and better event for this upcoming spring. We are still looking for volunteers to help plan the event and if you’re interested please contact: Edmonton@ewb.ca

2) EWB retreats and conferences

Our chapter participates in both regional and national retreats and conferences. This past October we sent 10 delegates to a retreat in Sylvan Lake and we are currently organizing our group to attend the National Conference in Ottawa this January. These conferences allow our members to network and learn from experienced EWBers.

3) Run To End Poverty

This year will be the first year EWB Edmonton participates in the Run to End Poverty. This event has been extremely successful in other cities and we plan to use the money raised from this excellent event to support our African programs. We are currently seeking runners and organizers to help us out. Please contact edmonton@ewb.ca if you are interested.
