With moving day just around the corner, many will have to settle for less than acceptable housing, while those most vulnerable will be left with no other option than the street.

The federal government recently made housing a human right in law—a positive step for all Canadians. While we will be here to help those who end up knocking at our door—some for the first time, others not—our elected officials must commit to policies and funding ensuring that everyone has a place to call home.

We believe the long-term answer to homelessness reduction remains access to supported, affordable housing, and that’s why it has become our largest service offering today. With your help, we will continue to work towards a future where every citizen has a place to call home.
