in Our City

Homelessness is not what you think it is. It is not a person without a home, but a city that has lost its way.

Calgary is definitely not that kind of city.

In fact, this city we call home is a recognized leader in homelessness research, data and the design and development of the comprehensive programs that will end homelessness.

We have the skill, the commitment and the community spirit to get this done.

In 2008 Calgary’s Plan to End Homelessness launched, outlining an effective strategy to tackle homelessness. The plan provided a roadmap to ensuring Calgary built a robust, coordinated system-of-care capable of ensuring all Calgarians had timely access to the right resources, right housing and right supports to prevent and end homelessness in their lives.
