Five emerging trends in affordable housing and homelessness

Over at the web site of the Calgary Homeless Foundation, I’ve written a blog post titled “Five emerging trends in affordable housing and homelessness.”

Points raised in the blog post include the following:

-The Trudeau government has spent impressive amounts of money on affordable housing and homelessness.  This is time-limited money though.

-There is currently no federal plan in place to deal with the imminent expiry of funding agreements that support existing units of non-profit housing across Canada.

-Many plans to “end homelessness” were put in place by municipalities across Canada in the late-2000s.  Those plans are starting to sunset, yet there’s still a considerable amount of homelessness in most of those muncipalities. The proverbial chickens are coming home to roost.
