Closing the Circle: Discussing Indigenous Homelessness in Canada

What We Heard at the National Indigenous Gathering in Winnipeg

In 2017 the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness (COH), in partnership with Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata Centre (Ma Mawi) and the Social Planning Council of Winnipeg (SPCW), held a Roundtable on envisioning an end to Indigenous homelessness. Indigenous service providers, advocates, and people with lived experience of homelessness came together to discuss the meaning of Indigenous homelessness and how we might go about defining and measuring its end. Discussions stemming from the roundtable resulted in a range of suggestions and next steps, key themes, and concerns as outlined in this report.
