About Us

The Alliance to End Homelessness Ottawa is a member-driven coalition of over 75 organizations working together to end homelessness through systems planning and coordination, public education and advocacy, and mobilization.

The Alliance emerged in the late 1980s from community members who were concerned about the changing and growing homelessness in Ottawa. Since then, the Alliance has worked collaboratively to research and understand homelessness, advocate for structural change, and ultimately end homelessness.


To prevent, reduce, and end homelessness in Ottawa.


An inclusive community where everyone has an affordable, appropriate home.


  •   Equity: We center those most affected by homelessness and work with them to create solutions. 
  •   Collaboration: We work with everyone we can on our common goal of ending homelessness. 
  •   System-Level Impact: We work to change the conditions that create homelessness.
