Research summary

Canada is struggling with a national housing and homelessness crisis, and many of those affected are young people between the ages of 13 and 24. Some are growing up in poverty and without access to stable housing.

As Canada Research Chair in Community Partnered Social Justice, Dr. Naomi Nichols is studying Canada’s data-driven service delivery and governance efforts to ensure they enable organizations to prioritize equitable outcomes for Canada’s most structurally vulnerable youth. She and her research team are synthesizing and expanding two key areas of expertise: youth inequality, poverty and social exclusion; and knowledge mobilization and engaged scholarship.
