A Progress Report on Calgary’s Research Agenda to End Homelessness


Calgary’s 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness (10 Year Plan) was launched in 2007 by Calgary’s Committee to End Homelessness and in January of 2008, the Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF) was chosen to lead its oversight and implementation. There were several key strategies in the original plan, including a strategy specific to data and research. To improve data and systems knowledge the CHF, in consultation with academic and community researchers, engaged in the first Calgary Homelessness Research Symposium to develop a three-year research agenda in 2009.
