Welcome Message from the WHHI Executive Committee

It is a pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Winnipeg Housing and Homelessness Initiative (WHHI).

The WHHI was established in 2000 by the Governments of Canada and Manitoba, and the City of Winnipeg, to assist local community organizations revitalize Winnipeg’s older neighbourhoods, provide more opportunities to access safe, affordable housing, and create or enhance services for the homeless or those at risk of becoming homeless.

Canada, Manitoba and Winnipeg have a proud history of working together to ensure the community is directly involved in developing programs that will meet its needs. Through the combined resources of the three levels of government, we achieve a greater impact on assisting neighbourhood-based groups and service providers to help the people of this great city.

To date, the WHHI partnership has committed over $138 million that has or will help to repair, rehabilitate or build over 5815 units and 215 rooms or beds, as well as assist the homeless or those at risk of being homeless.

The WHHI and the community, along with corporate and government partners, have been making a significant difference in the lives of people in Winnipeg. These partnerships build on local expertise and encourage new and innovative approaches to addressing housing and homelessness issues.
