The focus is on ending homelessness by providing permanent housing and follow-up support. Individuals who are experiencing homelessness are housed first and then given appropriate supports.

  • The Housing First Support Program is intended to last 12 months.

  • The final stages of the program involve planning to discharge the client once self-sufficient.

Private Rentals:

For many people, due to waiting lists and the lack of affordable housing, private rentals may be the easier option. 

Here are some tips:

  • Walk around the neighbourhood you want to live in. Check out the availability or ‘for rent’ signs.
  • What do you have in your rental history that a landlord will want?
  • Will it be accessible for where you need to go?
