Hearing from Canadians on ways to prevent and reduce homelessness

From Employment and Social Development Canada

Current status: Open

This engagement is now open

The Advisory Committee on Homelessness is engaging with Canadians from July 17, 2017, to the end of August 2017 to gather their feedback and ideas on how to better prevent and reduce homelessness in Canada.

Why we are engaging you

Homelessness is a reality for too many Canadians and a challenge for every community. That is why the Advisory Committee on Homelessness is seeking views from Canadians on how to better prevent and reduce homelessness through an online engagement process. All Canadians are 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 in providing the Government with options for the redesign of the Homelessness Partnering Strategy (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.
