COVID-19 and Homelessness in Winnipeg
Research is underway to examine the impacts of COVID-19 on people experiencing homelessness in Winnipeg. Thanks to a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Partnership Engage Grant, University of Winnipeg professor Dr. Jino Distasio is partnering with End Homelessness Winnipeg on the project COVID-19: An Indigenous Pandemic Response to Homelessness. This initiative will draw together lessons learned over the past 12 months, during which local service providers adapted and collaborated as never before in order to keep people safer.
