HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS INFOGRAPHIC:
Youth homelessness is rapidly increasing across Canada, especially in cities where affordable housing is in short supply. A new study shows that immigrants and newcomers under the age of 24 are particularly over-represented within the homeless population. While many lack affordable, adequate, and permanent housing, others continue to live in ‘hidden homelessness’ – or shared, over-crowded housing.
