In 2015, the City conducted a survey to identify attitudes about homelessness and social housing among residents of Kingston and the County of Frontenac. Results of the survey will guide communication to ensure residents are informed about the approaches we're taking to address housing and homelessness issues.
If you'd like to find out what the City is doing to end chronic homelessness, have a look at our 10-Year Housing & Homelessness Plan. The plan proposes a new approach to housing and services that support those affected by homelessness. It ties in with the social equity and economic health -- two of four pillars of the Sustainable Kingston Plan, the community-built plan to make Kingston the most sustainable city in Canada.
The links below offer information on the full range of programs and services the City has in place, or is pursuing, to help make affordable housing available to those who need it most. Facilitating affordable housing is one of the City's top six priorities.
