Medicine Hat's virtual elimination of homelessness gives Calgary a good path to follow

Governments of all levels have been talking about ending homelessness for some time now, but Medicine Hat is actually walking the talk.


With a population over 63,000, Medicine Hat, for all intents and purposes, has put an end to chronic homelessness – a cycle in which individuals are perpetually stuck, residing in shelters, or worse, living on the streets for extended periods.


It's a goal seven municipalities across Alberta, including Calgary, vowed to accomplish almost a decade ago. But only Medicine Hat can claim success — outside of a handful of individuals who continue to use the city's shelter system on a long-term basis.
