About

The CAEH is working toward a Canada without homelessness. We are mobilizing communities to take action and are supporting them to apply proven approaches including Housing First and plans to end homelessness to transform programs, policies and systems toward the goal of ending homelessness.

We’re a leading voice on homelessness in Canada and we work with our partners in the private, public and non-profit sectors to build public and political support for the funding and policy change necessary to help communities achieve their goal of ending homelessness.

The Training and Technical Assistance Program is a mission based, non-profit training and technical assistance program of the CAEH that provides on the ground training and support to communities and front line workers.

Our Mission

The mission of the program is to facilitate and accelerate the shift to Housing First and ending homelessness in Canada by providing high quality, accessible, affordable, evidence based training and technical assistance.

The program is built off the Mental Health Commission of Canada’s (MHCC) Housing First Training and Technical Assistance program developed from the At Home/Chez-Soi project – the world’s largest research demonstration project of Housing First, conducted by the MHCC.

This project is funded by the Government of Canada's Homelessness Partnership Strategy (HPS)
