What is it?

Reside is an initiative that acquires abandoned and vacant properties and renovates them into affordable housing for individuals who are currently experiencing or at risk of homelessness; this includes: youth, women fleeing violence, veterans, and the LGBTQ2SI+ community.

Where does it come from?

While Reside is the first of its kind in Canada, Reside is based on the UK model, Canopy Housing. Other similar housing models do also exist internationally. Refer to our map to see these international housing models.
