Submit your nomination to become a member of the Advisory Committee on Homelessness
The call for nominations period is now closed.
Thank you for your interest in the Advisory Committee on Homelessness. Nominations are currently being assessed.
Members of the Advisory Committee on Homelessness will be announced in spring 2017.
Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) is launching a call for nominations for an Advisory Committee of experts and stakeholders in the field of homelessness to support the renewal of the Homelessness Partnering Strategy.
About the Advisory Committee
The Advisory Committee will be composed of 8 to 10 members who are external to government, have extensive knowledge of homelessness and are representative of Canada’s diversity. ESDC officials will attend all meetings of the Advisory Committee to provide policy and program expertise and advice. Guests and observers from other Government of Canada departments and other orders of government may also be invited to participate.
Nominees must be available and willing to commit to participate as Advisory Committee members over the entire period of the Committee’s work, anticipated to be up to six months. The Chair of the Advisory Committee will determine the frequency of meetings—in-person and virtual—and the level of involvement required of members. The Chair will also determine the extent of the travel required.
Members will not be financially compensated while conducting the Advisory Committee’s business; however, accommodations and travel costs will be covered when attending meetings or engagement activities outside of their home community, in accordance with the Treasury Board’s policies and directives. All travel and accommodation arrangements will be made by the Government of Canada. The Government of Canada will book travel, reserve hotel rooms and provide meals during Advisory Committee meetings. Accommodations for special needs or disabilities will also be provided as needed.
Following the completion of the selection process, the Government will announce the final membership of the Advisory Committee in spring 2017.
