Requested — Your Input for Canada’s Homelessness Strategy

February 4, 2019

OTTAWA:  Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, is pleased to advise that Employment and Social Development Canada is seeking your input to expand the Designated Communities stream of Reaching Home: Canada’s Homelessness Strategy.

Reaching Home will replace the existing Homelessness Partnering Strategy and will officially launch April 1, 2019.

Under Reaching Home, the Designated Communities will be expanded up to six new communities outside of Quebec and the territories with a population size of 25,000 and over who demonstrate a need for long-term stable federal homelessness funding. Eligible communities are encouraged to submit one concept per community that demonstrates a need for this funding.

An application process has been outlined to assist eligible communities to complete their submissions. Completed submissions with attachments are to be sent via email to hkd-dci@hrsdc-rhdcc.gc.ca .

The deadline for applications is March 8, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time.

“I encourage communities in the Yellowhead riding who meet the criteria and are experiencing homelessness in their community to apply,” concluded MP Eglinski.
