Housing and Homelessness

Guiding Principle: Individuals and families are entitled to the comfort of a home through community resources and personal choices.

This sector of the 2007-2008 Work Plan will include objectives that will assist in the alleviation of housing and homelessness in the City of Winnipeg. The current shortage of safe and affordable housing has a direct impact on achieving and sustaining a strong family unit. It is the Council's objective to ensure the involvement and consultation of the ACW in the development of new or amended government policies affecting the urban Aboriginal community. The Council will continue to support Aboriginal housing organizations in their efforts to alleviate housing and homelessness in the City of Winnipeg.
