Justice and Injustice: Homelessness, Crime, Victimization, and the Criminal Justice System

Justice and Injustice: Homelessness, Crime, Victimization, and the Criminal Justice System

The relationship between homelessness and the criminal justice in Canada has not been extensively examined. Using the situation in Toronto as a case study, this report begins to fill this knowledge gap by exploring major questions about homelessness and incarceration, criminal behaviour by and against people who are homeless, and innovative programs and policies that can prevent or ameliorate homelessness and incarceration.
