Reaching Home - Canada's Homelessness Strategy
July 27, 2019
As Canadians, we must do everything we can to reduce homelessness. That’s why our Liberal government launched Reaching Home – Canada’s Homelessness Strategy, a $2 billion investment to help us meet our ambitious goal of reducing homelessness by 50% over the next ten years.
Last year, I was thrilled to announce $1.4 million in new funding for homelessness programs in Guelph and Wellington County. Guelph has signed on with other communities to the 20,000 Homes Campaign. We set targets and we are seeing the results of our coordinated efforts and these investments.
By working together, here in Guelph and Wellington County we have reduced chronic homelessness by 24% over the last year. Reaching Home will help communities more effectively work together so that we can realize a Canada without homelessness.
Be a part of the solution.
