Homeless Hub Report Series -
There is a considerable amount of visible homelessness in Yellowknife (NWT), yet very little third-party analysis of the situation. This report begins by briefly discussing who is homeless in Yellowknife and then outlines program responses, including emergency shelters and various models of housing. An overview will then be provided of major funding initiatives from the federal and territorial governments, as well as various forms of homelessness assistance provided by the City of Yellowknife. The report concludes by making policy recommendations with respect to the need for increased accountability, shelter standards, more housing options for the homeless, and a public health response to alcohol and drug use.

The Homeless Hub encourages discussion about the future of homelessness research, policy and services in Canada. This project began with an understanding that different stakeholders (in government, academia, and the social services sector) are likely to think about and utilize research in different ways. As such, the website was built with different stakeholders in mind. We invite your participation to ensure that a broad range of voices, including those experiencing homelessness, are represented.
You will encounter opinions and perspectives from varied sources. These may not reflect the views of the Homeless Hub, its funders or any other partner organization.
Be Respectful: We welcome your participation, but any comments that contain vulgar or offensive language, personal attacks, are wildly off-topic or otherwise inappropriate will be removed immediately and the offending party risks losing the ability to participate.
If You See Something Inappropriate, Report It: You may report any comment as inappropriate. Reported comments are immediately removed, pending review, so please report responsibly. The Homeless Hub has sole discretion in determining what is and what is not appropriate.
Don’t Include Personal Contact Information: To protect yourself and the privacy of others, please do not include phone numbers, e-mail addresses, or other personally identifying information in your comments. Such material will be removed from the site.
Do Not Request Services: This site is for the exchange of ideas and information regarding issues pertaining to homelessness. It is not an appropriate location to request services or make referrals.
Registrants are automatically subscribed to the Homeless Hub’s monthly e-newsletter.
Welcome! We look forward to interacting with you.
