Alberta Street News is published monthly by the Edmonton Street News Society. All writers, photographers. and designers are volunteers.
The first issue of Edmonton Street News hit the street on November 16, 2003 with a run of 1,000 copies. Currently, 3000 copies are printed monthly, and there are about 25 active vendors. Since 2003, about 135 people have signed on as vendors, some for only a short period of time, others vending until they moved or found other means of making a living, and more than 30 vendors have passed away due to various reasons.
Responding to the need to service vendors in Calgary with a street newspaper, Edmonton Street News became Alberta Street News in early 2012.
