Webinar: A New Direction – A Framework for Homelessness Prevention

While there will always be a need for emergency services to help those in crisis, we need to focus on preventive strategies that address the many causes of homelessness, to reduce the number of people in Canada who experience the trauma of becoming homeless. The Canadian Observatory on Homelessness launched A New Direction: A Framework for Homelessness Prevention, which provides a definition of what homelessness prevention means and outlines the policies and practices needed to effectively prevent homelessness. The framework draws on international examples where countries such as Wales, Scotland, Australia, and Germany have successfully taken up homelessness prevention. This webinar, with Dr. Stephen Gaetz and Dr. Erin Dej, provides an outline of the framework and opens up a national conversation about homelessness prevention.
