The Federal Housing Advocate has been gathering information for an independent review on encampments and will be collecting submissions until May 26th, 2023.

They are seeking input from individuals “living in encampments, people experiencing homelessness, people who have been homeless in the past, advocates for the right to housing, people who work in the homeless sector, and other stakeholders.”[1]

Purpose: Share your stories, experiences, and ideas for solutions.

Following the review, the Advocate will be producing “a report with findings and recommendations that will be provided to the federal Minister responsible for housing.”[1]

"I'm really excited to have joined Lutherwood at a time where conversations about how we can continue to create spaces of belonging for all, are happening across the agency. As the Equity Leader, I really enjoy engaging with leaders and staff and learning so much about the way in which we walk alongside our community. I look forward to contributing to the amazing work happening throughout the organization."
