Hearing directly from community is an important part to the work CHIL leads in preventing and addressing Indigenous experiences of homelessness in Hamilton.  Visit the CHIL tent to learn more about current Indigenous homelessness programs and services in Hamilton.

Our team will be on site throughout the weekend with a survey for Indigenous community members to share their experiences and ideas on housing and homelessness in Hamilton.

Indigenous community members who participate in this survey will receive a $10 Tim Horton's gift card and entry into three daily draws for a $100 grocery gift card. 


Please note, all prizes must be picked up by end of each day.
