Women and Housing in Canada: Barriers to Equality

There has been too little analysis of homelessness as a women's issue or consideration of various programs and responses to homelessness from the standpoint of the particular barriers facing women in meeting their housing needs. The goal of this research project is to consider homelessness from this neglected perspective, to facilitate collaboration among women in order to address some of the important omissions and failures of current federal programs and to fashion appropriate strategies through which the federal government could respond to the growing crisis of women's homelessness in Canada.
