Event description


The Annual Community Forum on Ending Homelessness is the only event of its kind in Ottawa, bringing housing researchers, practitioners, front line workers, policy makers, community organizations and governments together to work collaboratively to build solutions to ending homelessness in Ottawa.

The Alliance's Forum marks National Housing Day, this year held on November 22nd, 2017.

Our program provides an opportunity for local agencies to meet collectively and exchange learning, best-practices and strategies from a growing local and Canadian body of knowledge on ending homelessness, and will offer practical information, tools, research, discussion and much inspiration!
