City of Edmonton
Our commitment to providing Edmontonians transparent and meaningful data about the city they call home.
Data tells a story - Edmonton's Story
The insights we collect illustrate our city as it is today. Our goals write the future we want to realize. We want our story to be about a city where we care for one another. A healthy, liveable city that is resilient to a changing climate. A city that offers vibrant and welcoming spaces, and attracts and inspires future Edmontonians to call our city home.
Big cities have big goals
The City of Edmonton’s strategic goals set our course and data steers our decisions. We monitor the city’s performance and trends to help us understand how Edmonton is constantly changing and growing. Tracking Edmonton’s progress helps us respond to the evolving needs of our community.
ConnectEdmonton is Edmonton's Strategic Plan for 2019 - 2028 and the City of Edmonton’s highest level strategy. It sets the direction for our future so we can realize our vision for Edmonton in 2050. The City of Edmonton monitors our progress towards its 4 goals with 36 indicators. Click through the icons below to see current indicators and trends for each.
Achieving our goals is a collective effort. The City of Edmonton collaborates with public, private and non-profit organizations to achieve Edmonton’s long-term goals. The strategic goals set our direction however, The City of Edmonton does not set specific performance targets for community indicators. Each of our partners and stakeholders, other levels of government, and all Edmontonians play a role in achieving the vision of ConnectEdmonton.
The City Plan sets out the choices for the way Edmonton grows in the future and maps the path to our future city. This plan outlines 5 Big City Moves that define our transformative priorities: Greener as We Grow, Rebuildable City, Community of Communities, Inclusive and Compassionate and Catalyze and Converge. These key priorities touch on most aspects of life in Edmonton, including how we grow, our mobility systems, our open spaces, and our employment and social networks. These transformative priorities are about Edmonton’s future and need to be balanced with delivering the excellent essential city services Edmontonians rely on today.
Soon, this site will also track and share City Plan measures that align with the ConnectEdmonton goals. Tracking these will provide insight into our progress as we grow to a city of 2 million people so we can further adjust our actions based on how we are doing.
