Advocacy Toolkit

Like you, The Alliance to End Homelessness Ottawa wants to see a fair, sustainable economy, a more engaged democracy, and a more inclusive society. Working in partnership with governments, this vision can be realized. 

The Alliance encourages our members and community parters to engage their local representatives across all orders of government to build relationships that enable strong and successful partnerships that educate, inform and support local efforts to address homelessness and housing affordability challenges and successes in Ottawa.

We have developed an ADVOCACY TOOLKIT for engagement with your provincial and municipal representatives.
