Homeless Veterans

We will make sure every homeless veteran has a place to call home.

Every year, about 3,000 veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces and Royal Canadian Mounted Police use the services of an emergency shelter. After their dedicated and selfless service to our country, Canadians can all agree: one homeless veteran is one too many.

To address veterans’ homelessness, we will move forward with building new, purpose-built accessible and affordable housing units, with a full range of health, social, and employment supports for veterans who need extra help. We will support this work with an additional investment of $15 million a year.
