Alberta Homelessness Research Consortium
The Alberta Secretariat for Action on Homelessness is the coordinating body for the Alberta Homelessness Research Consortium.
Established in 2010, the AHRC supports the objectives and strategies within A Plan for Alberta by informing policy development and sharing best practices.
It is a forum to share knowledge, develop opportunities, and facilitate collaboration among researchers from across Alberta who work in diverse fields, but share homelessness as a topic of study.
