The Government of Canada is committed to reducing and preventing homelessness and consulted with Canadians between July 17 and September 15, 2017, to gather their feedback and ideas on the redesign of the Homelessness Partnering Strategy (HPS).

Online consultation

Thank you to everyone who sent in their stories and feedback to help reduce and prevent homelessness in Canada. In the coming months, the Government of Canada will release a report based on what was heard during the engagement process.

What this consultation focused on

Homelessness is a reality for too many Canadians and a challenge for every community. That is why the Advisory Committee on Homelessness consulted with Canadians on how to better prevent and reduce homelessness through an online engagement process. All Canadians were invited to share their views and ideas through the online survey and by sharing their stories.

The Advisory Committee on Homelessness will consider the feedback and ideas from the engagement process and provide the Government with options for the redesign of the HPS.

Through the HPS, the Government of Canada provides support and funding to communities to develop local solutions to homelessness. Through Budget 2017, the Government of Canada announced that it would expand and extend funding for the HPS beyond 2018–2019.
