Background

In 2015, the Grande Prairie Five Year Plan to End Homelessness 2015-2019  was approved by City Council. It provides a strategic framework for eliminating homelessness in Grande Prairie, including an accountability model for meeting goals.

Recognizing that homelessness is a complex issue that requires a multi-dimensional, community-based solution, the City of Grande Prairie aims to utilize the unique nature of Grande Prairie’s economy and community resources to end homelessness.

The local plan is committed to supporting the Government of Alberta’s Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness and works in partnership with many organizations throughout the City. Read more about the plan and results to date online.
