Ottawa, Ontario – The Douglas-Coldwell Foundation has announced the winners of the 2006 Douglas-Coldwell Award and has given two $25,000 prizes to two projects that best demonstrate Tommy Douglas’ vision for Canada. The winners of the 2006 Douglas-Coldwell Award are the Canadian Health Coalition in partnership with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, and the Toronto Disaster Relief Committee for its 1% Solution Campaign against homelessness.
Ottawa, ON - In recognition of his being named “the Greatest Canadian” the Douglas-Coldwell Foundation made two important announcements today, both paying tribute to its celebrated founder, the late Tommy Douglas.
The Toronto Disaster Relief Committee (TDRC) is a group of social policy, health care and housing experts, academics, business people, community health workers, social workers, AIDS activists, anti-poverty activists, people with homelessness experience, and members of the faith community. We provide advocacy on housing and homelessness issues. We declare homelessness as a national disaster, and demand that Canada end homelessness by implementing a fully-funded National Housing Program through the One Percent Solution.

Stories of Homeless Women in Canada

Though they account for only a small portion of the formal homeless statistics, there are many more women living on insufficient funds, with violent partners, in unacceptable dwellings, or in other fragile circumstances that are too often overlooked. They are our mothers, our daughters, our aunts, our nieces, our wives—they are all our sisters—and they remain largely invisible compared to homeless men.
This is an exciting year-long project that will explore the major issues relevant to diversity and immigration in Ottawa, looking for ways to maximize the opportunities and minimize the challenges.
