In Canada, there are an estimated 50,000 invisible homeless in any given night, known as couch surfing and over 30,000 homeless that stay on the streets, or in shelters. Of these people, only 7,000 suffer from addictions, mental illness, isolation or depression.
A great majority are working class people, and their families. They simply can’t afford the high cost of living, and the unattainable cost of paying rent and utilities. Good housing is scarce.
