Session Outline
• Introduction to the Shelters and Public Health Project
• Overview of a rapid scoping review on the role of public health
working with shelters serving people experiencing houselessness,
completed in 2022. https://www.nccmt.ca/rapid-evidence-service/48
• Overview of NCCID’s consultations & Institute that explored
opportunities to improve communications and programming that work
for shelter clients and shelter staff.
• Discussion: What are the possibilities for increased collaboration
among public health and shelters?
Thinking about people’s mobility has been a
“lens” for NCCID for some time
• Newcomers to Canada
• Mobility and movement of populations within
Canada
• Movement in and out of certain facilities
NCCID, Shelters, and Public Health
We intend this to be a multi-year exploration
Our guiding principles are intended to ensure that we
put people first:
• Our primary interest is in the people who make use of shelters and the staff and
volunteers who provide services
• Shelters may not agree that public health is a suitable partner. We take our lead
from staff at shelters about where public health may be able to contribute.
• Public health personnel may already have good relationships in the community,
and can share knowledge and practices with each other
• Activities will explicitly include learning from and working with First Nations,
Métis and Inuit community experts and leaders
• Systems and structures (political, economic and governance) can be changed to
improve health equity for shelter clients, staff and volunteers.
