Ottawa’s 10-Year Housing and Homelessness Plan aims to achieve the following outcomes by 2024:
No one is unsheltered
Chronic homelessness is eliminated
Emergency shelter stays are less than 30 days
Emergency shelters provide an adequate level of service
Homelessness Partnering Strategy: Ottawa
Federal Funding via Employment and Social Development Canada
HPS Funding for Housing First: Ottawa
Housing First
Activities Funding
Ottawa Case Study Findings
Funding for Housing First under the HPS is not tied to outcomes
Outcomes are worse than for other local service providers, particularly for Aboriginal and Inuit adults
Instead, funding is determined on the basis of past funding

CHPI, IAH, and other homelessness funding streams are also not tied to outcomes
