The Traveller 2009 (NNAPF Newsletter)

MESSAGE from the Editor

For many of us, even in the usually warmer parts of Canada, winter stubbornly refuses to let go, prolonging the daily challenges, especially for our Elders. Lots of snow still blanketing the path as we hurry shivering to the front door, although the change in daylight hours signalled the start of a new cycle of seasons. But in a couple of weeks, we may now look forward to the official switch into spring. Let’s hope the weather does cooperate!

Homelessness in Canada: Past, Present, Future

In Homelessness in Canada: Past, Present, Future, David Hulchanski looks at the evolution of the set of social problems we now call homelessness and the efforts of governments and communities to address them. A key reason for the lack of progress is that needed social housing, income support and support services, the three reasons why some Canadians become homeless, have not been a high priority for governments at any level. Had the late 1960s and early 1970s commitment to adequate housing, income and support services for all Canadians been sustained and improved, as we did in the case of health care, advances in addressing the challenge of homelessness would have been realized. Instead support has been withdrawn to save money or decrease the role of government.

March 10, 2009

Vancouver) A new study reveals that BC’s poor and middle class families are in worse financial shape than their parents’ generation. The study, released today by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, finds that fully 60% of families with children are earning less than their counterparts in the late 1970s, while incomes for the wealthiest 10% have increased dramatically. The result is a widening gap between the rich and the rest of the population.
