Report Localized Approaches to Ending Homelessness: Indigenizing Housing First Institute of Urban Studies / Institute of Urban Studies (The University of Winnipeg)
The pandemic has disproportionately impacted Indigenous Peoples in Canada, adding to an already increased risk of homelessness resulting from a colonial legacy and ongoing systematic discrimination. This report featured on the HLHub provides a general guide for implementing and delivering Housing First within Indigenous communities. This report serves as a general guide for implementing and delivering Housing First, particularly in Indigenous community contexts. The objective is to offer a framework that places community localizing efforts at the forefront to help ensure the best fit is achieved for launching Housing First. The work shared here was governed by a Council of Elders and local leaders, who helped develop this set of observations on why and how it is important to adapt and localize Housing First to the community context. Our lens of analysis is rooted within an Indigenous perspective that draws on local experiences within Manitoba.
