Adequate Housing

Housing has now been declared as a human right in Canada.  Adequate Housing that is safe, suitable, and affordable is necessary for people in Oxford to have housing security and experience well-being.  Social Planning Council Oxford is working with community partners to find solutions to respond to our current housing crisis.

Please contact us if you are interested in becoming active in creating an adequate housing solution in Oxford County.

Registry Week 2020

Registry Week 2020 (November 23-26)

Our community is conducting Registry Week 2020 from November 23-26. During the week, people experiencing homelessness will be asked to participate in a survey that asks them questions about their needs related to housing. The ultimate goal of this project is for it to be the first step toward ending homelessness in Oxford County.

People participating in the survey will receive a gift card for participation.  The following locations will be doing surveying: Registry Week Locations.

Or phone 1-877-280-1391 to participate.
