Homelessness is a complex but solvable problem. In Hamilton’s Systems Planning Framework: Coming Together to End Homelessness, our community has laid out a roadmap for ending chronic homelessness by 2025. This means building a system that ensures homelessness is prevented whenever possible, or if it cannot be prevented that it is rare, brief, and non-recurring.
This work is guided by the Council approved 10-year Housing and Homelessness Action Plan. The City works in partnership with the Coalition of Hamilton Indigenous Leadership to build a coordinated housing and homeless-serving system in deep collaboration with community partners to ensure everyone in Hamilton has a home. This includes actioning recommendations from a national resource produced by Hamilton partners to enact Indigenous Best Practices Towards a Wholistic Systems Approach to Homelessness.
