Ontario Youth Homelessness Community planning panel discussion - CAEH Conference Registration NOT Required
Communities and all levels of government across Canada have begun to recognize that youth homelessness is a complex social issue distinct from adult homelessness in its causes and conditions. In response, community planning that involves broad multi-sectoral engagement is increasing as an effective strategy to ensure innovative upstream solutions. Several communities are pioneering this work across the province and the government of Ontario has made youth homelessness one of four priorities in the review of the province’s PovertyReduction Strategy. Now is the moment to support and scale these efforts into a province-wide community of practice.A Way Home Canada, a national coalition to prevent and end youth homelessness, invites you to an Ontario Information Session for community leaders working on or interested in community planning to prevent and end youth homelessness. This session will feature presentations that provide context to the important work being done to prevent and end youth homelessness at the provincial and community level. We encourage young people with lived experience of homelessness, community leaders, service providers, researchers andOntario Service Managers to attend.
