The State of Homelessness in Canada 2013

A Toronto Star editorial reports that ‘the authors [of The State of Homelessness in Canada 2013, released this week by the Canadian Homelessness Research Network and the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness] saved their highest accolades for municipalities. They hailed cities and towns across the country for their creativity, willingness to experiment and determination to prevent, not just manage, homelessness…. The provinces — with the sole exception of Alberta — fared badly in the report. A few have long-term plans to end homelessness, but lack the political will to implement them. Ontario falls into this category. It is promising a more “strategic and co-ordinated response” to homelessness, but failing to back it up with funding.’
