Ending Homelessness in Canada

The Case for Homelessness Prevention

New!

Homelessness is at critical levels. This book identifies the causes and offers ideas about what it will take to prevent Canadians from finding themselves without a roof over their head.

More Canadians than ever lack a home. Almost every town and city now has homeless residents. Municipalities scramble to provide shelters, and local politicians debate whether to take action to end sleeping on vacant land and in parks.

Ending Homelessness in Canada gets at the root causes of homelessness and the solutions and practices that can be employed to end it. Contributors involved in working to end homelessness address the key factors producing homelessness and describe a wide range of innovative measures to halt the flow.
