Affordable housing is a year-round issue. But every November, for more than a decade, numerous Edmonton and area organizations, including management bodies, funders, housing providers, and social service agencies, have come together to raise awareness about the importance of the need for safe and affordable housing for all. See who’s involved >>

What got the ball rolling?

On November 22, 1998, the Big Cities Mayors’ Caucus of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) declared homelessness a national disaster. In 2000, November 22 was recognized as National Housing Strategy Day in Canada. Across the nation, events that take place on this day raise awareness of the need to address the housing and homelessness crisis in Canada. Get more history >>
