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]

“From the very beginning we had a very special culture where the staff cared about one another, and that was reflected in how they cared for our clients. It was a real team effort with a strong commitment to changing lives. It was a real privilege and honour to be part of such a dynamic organization, and I am proud of how it is carrying on its original legacy today.”
