Plan to End Aboriginal Homelessness in Calgary

Aboriginal people are over-respresented amongst Calgary's homeless. While great strides have been made to reduce overall homelessness in Calgary, according to Calgary's homeless counts, the numbers of Aboriginal people on our streets and in our emergency shelters has not decreased and may in fact be growing.

This plan is rooted in three primary beliefs: that we can build a continuum of supports across and between our communities that will reduce the number of Aboriginal people who are homeless; that we can prevent homelessness before it happens for Aboriginal people and families; and that this must be done within a culturally safe and appropriate framework and with ongoing collaboration, engagement and consultation.
