Alberta's 7 Cities on Housing and Homelessness are the lead organizations responsible for the implementation of local Plans to End Homelessness, working together since 2001. The 7 Cities coordinate local plans at a systems level and align funding resources for greater impact and progress towards ending homelessness.

The 7 Cities provides a forum for dialogue with the federal and provincial representatives on housing and homelessness. The 7 Cities have long-standing histories of delivering strategic planning and service delivery in communities, along with administering and aligning funds, with accountabilities to several provincial or federal funders, including Alberta Human Services and the federal Homelessness Partnering Strategy.

To successfully implement Housing First using a system planning approach, the 7 Cities serve as local:

  1. System planning and integration leads,
  2. Funders and performance managers,
  3. Knowledge leaders and innovators.

More on our approach can be found under 7 Cities Initiatives.
