About ASN

Alberta Street News is published monthly by Homeward Bound Support Services. All writers and photographers are volunteers.

Our History
The first issue of the Edmonton Street News hit the street on November 16, 2003, with a run of 1,000 copies.

Edmonton Street News became Alberta Street News in early 2012. In September 2014, Martyshuk Housing along with Homeward Bound Support Services acquired Alberta Street News, which they now operate.

Currently, 5000 copies are printed monthly, with your support, we would like to reach a goal of 50,000 and produce a bi-monthly paper by the end of 2015.

About 135 people have signed on as vendors. Some vendors for only a short period of time, others vending until they moved or found other means of making a living. More than 30 vendors have passed away due to various reasons. We have active vendors in Edmonton and Calgary.

Our Board of Directors
Pedro Schultz, Linda Dumont, Jim Gurnett, Allan Sheppard, Shaun Giroux, Marie Branston, Kathy Reith, Eric Rice, Naomi Giroux.
