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.
