Homelessness is a longstanding issue in Brampton, and now, the province is investing in local and innovative approaches with the grand goal of ending homeless in Ontario.

Supportive housing and services galore are coming to Ontario to end homelessness by 2025. According to the province, chronic homelessness refers to the state of being homeless for six months or more in the past year.

“Our goal is to end chronic homelessness by 2025, and we’ll only reach it by making smart investments in what works and leveraging lessons learned into meaningful action across the province,” said Peter Milczyn, Minister of Housing and Minister Responsible for the Poverty Reduction Strategy. “By supporting the innovative work of Ontario’s municipalities we will end chronic homelessness, substantially reduce poverty, and deliver a brighter future for every person who calls our province home.”
