Western, USask, Selkirk researchers explore housing, homelessness prevention, support

Western University, the University of Saskatchewan, and Selkirk College have all recently announced partnerships and research projects focused on homelessness prevention and support. Western has partnered with Youth Opportunities Unlimited and an Indigenous youth council to run the EQUIP Housing Research Project, which will adapt the existing EQUIP model to address homelessness prevention and cultural safety. At USask, Associate Professor Sarah Buhler has received a grant to conduct research on youth evictions, which have long-term consequences for youth who may not be aware of their legal rights as tenants. At Selkirk, Jayme Jones is leading a research project in collaboration with partners such as North Island College and the cities of Trail, Nelson, and Castlegar to investigate rural homelessness and wellbeing.
