Abstract: Have you ever wondered about why homelessness exists in Canada? This ebook/online course brings together lived experience representation and the most recent research to explore homelessness in Canada from a range of different perspectives. Learners are challenged to think about homelessness from various academic viewpoints, including the fields of Indigenous and Canadian Studies, Mental Health and Public Health Studies, Population Studies, Social Sciences, and Health Sciences. The authors pose seemingly simple questions and then, through the use of real life scenarios, embedded interview videos, artwork, and interactive activities, demonstrate how the answers are actually rather complex. "Understanding Homelessness in Canada: From the Street to the Classroom" is a must-read for Canadians everywhere.
Features of this resource include: the ability to use the ebook in full or by select topic, imbedded interactive activities for students to record their thoughts and document their learning, use of real-life scenarios informed by authors with lived experience of homelessness, over 15 hours of video content from leading Canadian researchers, a podcast series for enhanced accessibility, suggested research projects for students who want to expand their learning, and reflection questions that can be used for seminar and/or assessments.
