Homelessness 101

This section is a starting point for those researching or wanting to learn more about homelessness, particularly in Canada. We address definitions, statistics and common myths and questions. We also look at real costs of homelessness.

Think of this as your entry point to the vast library – we have over 30,000 resources – that is the Homeless Hub website.

When you are ready to explore issues in homelessness in more detail, you can view Topics or Solutions. The Teacher Resources section is great for teachers who want to discuss this issue with their students in an elementary or secondary classroom setting. 

If you're looking for a particular resource, we invite you to search for it in our Library.
