Veteran Homelessness Program: Overview

The Government of Canada and the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) have reached a tentative agreement, ending the strike affecting many public service members. There may still be some service impacts over the next few days and weeks as services return to full capacity.


As of April 28, 2023 at 9:00 am EDT, Infrastructure Canada will be accepting applications for both the Services and Support Stream and the Capacity Building Stream of the Veteran Homelessness Program.

The Government of Canada is committed to preventing and reducing Veteran homelessness in Canada. Veterans have served our country courageously and they deserve a safe and affordable place to call home.

In taking action to address the fact that there is an estimated more than 2,000 Veterans experiencing homelessness every year, the Government of Canada is launching a dedicated Veteran Homelessness Program.

The purpose of the Veteran Homelessness Program is to prevent and reduce Veteran homelessness in Canada. The program delivers contribution funding through two streams:

  • The Services and Supports Stream will focus on the delivery of rent supplements and wrap-around services (such as counselling and addiction treatment) to Veterans experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
  • The Capacity Building Stream will focus on research and improved data collection on Veteran homelessness, as well as increased capacity of organizations to deliver tailored initiatives to address the needs of Veterans experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
