Our Approach

The Training and Technical Assistance Program is a mission focused, non-profit consulting service. Our mission 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. Our approach is governed by these principles:


Any profit is invested back into our mission to end homelessness in Canada.

Customized solutions

We recognize every community is unique and Housing First and ending homelessness must be done in a way that makes sense in each community. We’ll work with you to develop a customized Training and Technical Assistance plan to meet your unique needs.

Customer satisfaction

Our goal is to exceed your expectations for the quality and impact of the training and technical assistance we provide.

Accessible and affordable

Our priority is to get you the training and support you need to end homelessness in your community. Our model allows us deliver that training and support at an affordable price. We’ll work with you to deliver what you need within your budget.

Commitment to quality

We employ a diverse faculty of trainers who are leading experts in their fields and our training and technical assistance is based on the latest and best evidence. We will continuously evaluate our service and provide ongoing feedback and training to our faculty to ensure the highest possible quality. We work closely with our partners, researchers and experts in the field to ensure our work constantly improves.


We take responsibility for what we do and how we do it.


We work closely and collaboratively with our partners, peers and our customers to achieve our mission.
