Organized by the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness (CAEH) the 20,000 Homes Campaign is a "national movement of communities working together to permanently house 20,000 of Canada's most vulnerable people experiencing homelessness by July 1, 2018."
In 2014, Waterloo Region was the first community in Canada to join the campaign and pilot a Registry Week. The Waterloo Region Campaign Progress Report (2014-March 2017) identifies progress since that time including the development of a by-name list and coordinated access system and housing 261 people with the greatest depth of need. This progress report format was borrowed from and further developed based on the Guelph-Wellington 20,000 Homes Campaign Progress Report.
