The Edmonton Coalition On Housing and Homelessness (ECOHH) has a vision of safe, appropriate, affordable and adequate housing for all Edmontonians.
ECOHH raises awareness of housing issues and advocates for the right to housing through a multitude of activities and actions, including hosting regularly scheduled monthly meetings.
Myth and Reality
Spreading myths about campsites and those who live in them is reprehensible and stands in the way of arriving at solutions which respect the dignity of those who live in the campsites and serve the best interests of the wider community.
People who want to destroy the homes of those liv-ing on our streets often try to create divisions in the larger community. Those who speak up for people who are homeless or who question the legality and morality of tearing down informal settlements are often labeled “bleeding hearts.”
Witnessing - Encampment Sweeps December/January 2024
From December 29, 2023 through to early January, 2024, the City of Edmonton and Edmonton Police Services tore down homeless encampments across the city. ECOHH members and independent citizens came out to witness.
Witnessing is an important act, and we want to thank everyone who came out, shared, and raised awareness of the sweeps.
Below are just a few of the many photos we have. Please continue to spread the news and raise awareness among your circle, and contact your elected representatives to let them know your concerns.
ECOHH holds General Member Meetings on the second Tuesday of every month from 10:00 am - 11:30 am (we take a break for the months of July and August).
Our Policy and Communications Committee meets the first Tuesday of every month from 3:30 pm -5:00 pm, 12 months a year. This committee is where a lot of ECOHH's work to educate and advocate for affordable housing happens.
If you are concerned about housing challenges and homelessness, and would like to learn more about ECOHH, please join us for one of our meetings. All are welcome. Contact email@example.com for zoom details**.
