The State of Homelessness in Canada

by Maggie Reid

The State of Homelessness in Canada

A few weeks ago, the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness (Homeless Hub) and the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness (CAEH) released their second annual ‘State of Homelessness in Canada Report’. 235,000 Canadians experience homelessness each year and 35,000 canadians are homeless on any given night according to that report. But this report is not simply about providing facts on homelessness but working towards developing concrete solutions to eliminate it.

I spoke with York University Professor and Director of the Homeless Hub, Stephen Gaetz about this report and what it would really take to end the problems of chronic homelessness and affordable housing in Canada.
