The Provincial Synod of the Ecclesiastical Province of Ontario observes Homelessness Sunday on Good Shepherd Sunday – 4th Sunday of Easter.

Communities across the province of Ontario are experiencing a significant crisis of homelessness and housing affordability that increases marginalization and social isolation for many of our most vulnerable citizens. This crisis affects communities large and small, urban, suburban, rural and Indigenous. This crisis has been identified as a priority area for action by the Ecclesiastical Province of Ontario, in line with the 2013 Joint Assembly Declaration calling on Anglicans to learn about issues of poverty and homelessness, advocate for government action, and pray for “safe, affordable, and adequate housing for all.”
