Government of Canada helps those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in rural and remote communities

Hope, British Columbia, June 22, 2012—Rural communities across the country will have access to valuable homelessness research funded by the Government of Canada. This announcement was made today by Mark Strahl, Member of Parliament for Chilliwack–Fraser Canyon, on behalf of the Honourable Diane Finley, Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development.

"Our government is giving a hand-up to Canadians with housing needs and is helping to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty," said Mr. Strahl. "We are pleased to partner with the Hope & Area Transition Society. Through partnerships like this one, we are helping to raise awareness of the issues surrounding homelessness in rural and remote communities and enabling these communities to find local solutions."

"This project will determine the extent of homelessness and people at risk of homelessness, including those inadequately housed and individuals or families who 'couch surf' in these smaller more rural communities," said Geraldine Dyble, Executive Director of the Hope & Area Transition Society. "This is a positive step forward in determining why at-risk individuals seek smaller communities to settle in and to help smaller communities gain strategies on addressing homelessness."

Homelessness Partnering Strategy funding of almost $70,000 will be used by the Hope & Area Transition Society to identify who is migrating to the communities of Boston Bar, Agassiz and Hope, how migration is affecting homelessness in these communities and how services could be tailored to better meet the needs of those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Once the study is completed, a final report will be shared with other similarly sized communities to assist with future community planning.
