Student Research Ideas

If you are interested in learning more about homelessness and contributing new knowledge to the field, here are some ideas you may want to consider for an Honour’s or Master’s thesis. 

  1. There are four priority areas that need to be addressed before homelessness can end in Canada. Conduct a literature review on these four areas and write recommendations about how they can be implemented in policy and practice. Consider how these recommendations might be tailored to stakeholders at the municipal, provincial / territorial, and federal levels of government.
  2. Select one of the populations that you learned about throughout this book (such as women, LGBTQ2S+ populations, Indigenous populations, youth, seniors, Veterans, racialized and/or newcomer Canadians, or families) and conduct a literature review to create a plan for ending homelessness amongst this population. Do their priorities differ from those identified by the researchers?
