An Examination of Hidden Homelessness Among Aboriginal Peoples in Prairie Cities

A new research report, Home is Where the Heart is and Right now that is Nowhere (in PDF) by the Institute of Urban Studies at the University of Winnipeg examines hidden homelessness among Aboriginal persons in prairie cities. In particular, data was gathered in Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Regina that focused on better understanding the shelter circumstances of persons precariously housed in tenuous situations, including those who lived temporarily with friends or family or those who resided in any number of short-term accommodations such as shelters, rooming houses or hotels. CBC has a news story about the report.
