Royal Society of Canada - Seeking Shelter: Homelessness and COVID-19

Tuesday, 16 February 2021

The RSC Policy Briefing entitled “Seeking Shelter: Homelessness and COVID-19” is now freely and publicly available 


"Those experiencing homelessness are among our most vulnerable when faced with the consequences of the COVID pandemic” says Dr. Jeff Turnbull, Chair of the Working Group. “While immediate strategies must be put in place to protect this community, this report also calls for a comprehensive housing strategy to end homelessness and the vulnerability of those who experience it."  

The RSC has prepared Policy Briefings and other resources (including a panel on homelessness, a recording of which can be found here) to ensure open access to independent, evidence-based science for Canadians.
