Homelessness in Yellowknife
I’m in Yellowknife all week attending events relating to the launch of a policy report on homelessness.Â The report is one of several articles coming out of a multi-year research project looking at affordable housing and homelessnessÂ in the Northwest Territories.Â The project is being supervised by Dr. Frances Abele (Carleton University) and our community partner is Arlene HachÃ© (recent recipient of the Order of Canada and Executive Director of the Centre for Northern Families).Â The main sponsor of the research is the Social Economy Research Network of Northern Canada (SERNNoCa).Â
The full policy report (along with a summary) is available at the following web site: http://www.homelesshub.ca/yellowknife/
