Homelessness Canada in the State of 2016 /




This next phase is marked by the promising results of the Housing First model across Canada, significant reductions in homelessness in Medicine Hat and Hamilton, federal interest and investment in housing and homelessness, and importantly, the return to a National Housing Strategy – a long overdue conversation in Canada. [...] In the State of Homelessness in Canada 2016, the third report of this kind produced by the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness (COH) and the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness (CAEH), we address this question. [...] In the State of Homelessness in Canada 2013, we provided the first reliable estimates on the nature and scope of homelessness in Canada. [...] In the State of Homelessness in Canada 2014, we explored the relationship between the lack of affordable housing in Canada and the growth of homelessness. [...] In the State of Homelessness in Canada 2014, we made the case that a withdrawal of federal investment in affordable housing, beginning over 25 years ago, has led to the current affordable housing crisis in Canada and has directly contributed to dramatic rises in homelessness.
