Program at a Glance

We’re very excited to offer another jam packed conference program. CAEH17 will include 66, 90 minute concurrent sessions and six plenaries delivered over two and a half days. This year our conference will have a special focus on Indigenous homelessness with dedicated sessions, featured content throughout the program, some terrific keynote speakers as well as art, cultural and Ceremonial opportunities.

Our expanded 2017 conference program is organized into seven streams:

  Leadership, planning and practice
  Indigenous homelessness
  Women’s homelessness
  20,000 Homes Campaign
  Housing First
  A Way Home – youth homelessness
  Canadian Observatory on Homelessness – research and policy

Our friends in Winnipeg are also promising a wealth of local hospitality with some excellent tours and events.
