A portrait of Canadians who have been homeless

Although a minority of Canadians experience homelessness at a certain point in their life, some groups are at an elevated risk, including sexual minorities, Indigenous people and Black women.


This study uses data from the Canadian Housing Survey to examine characteristics of Canadians who, while they are now responsible for housing decisions within their household, had previously experienced unsheltered or hidden homelessness. It also examines differences in current housing, economic and health status between individuals with and without past experiences of homelessness.
