The Extreme Cold Weather Response Plan provides cold weather preparedness, response information, and activities focused on reducing the negative health impacts of extreme cold weather conditions. The main objectives during extreme cold are to:
• Alert those experiencing homelessness and other vulnerable populations that extreme cold weather conditions are either expected or currently exist;
• Enable those experiencing homelessness and other vulnerable populations to take appropriate precautions; and
• Trigger response actions by agencies that provide services or alter operations to protect those experiencing homelessness and other vulnerable populations from extremely cold weather.
The Plan includes a focus on preventing direct impacts of extreme cold weather on people experiencing homelessness and other vulnerable populations. Download the Plan here:
On October 24th, 2017, a half-day pre-CAEH conference summit on Indigenous homelessness engaged 300 participants in a facilitated and interactive process that involved keynote speakers, panel presentations, and roundtable group works. The focus was on defining Indigenous homelessness, linking Indigenous homelessness to the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada Calls to Action, and aligning homelessness work at the federal, provincial, and local levels. This report reflects a summary of common themes that were identified from the round table discussions:
This private rental market housing inventory aims to help understand trends in the private rental market that occurred in from 2006 – 2016 and how these trends may affect those experiencing or at risk of homelessness. The findings gathered in this report can assist in future planning for new affordable housing development, specifically targeted towards the homeless and at risk of being homeless population groups. This report was prepared with information from Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation’s rental market reports from 2006 – 2016 and analysed by End Homelessness Winnipeg. It uses maps, graphs and tables to illustrate trends in vacancy rate, housing stock and average rents by bedroom types and CMHC neighbourhoods.
This annual report marks the conclusion of End Homelessness Winnipeg’s third full year of operation – a good time to consider progress on the elements of the 10-year Plan to End Homelessness in Winnipeg, as well as the community’s progress on four priorities: preventing homelessness, increasing housing supply, providing supports, and using evaluation and shared measurement to manage and monitor progress.
