City Recognized for Achieving a Quality By-Name List

The City of Greater Sudbury has been recognized by Built For Zero (BFZ) Canada for achieving a Quality By-Name List for chronic homelessness. Built For Zero FZ-C is part of the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness (CAEH). Founded in 2012, the CAEH leads a national movement of individuals, organizations and communities working together to end homelessness. They mobilize communities to take action on homelessness and support them to apply proven approaches including Housing First, data-driven decision making and collective action to transform programs, policies, and systems toward the goal of ending homelessness. Both the Federal and Provincial governments have partnered with Built For Zero to support communities in the development of a Coordinated Access System and By-Name List.

Achieving a quality By-Name list is a requirement of the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing under the new Homelessness Prevention Program. This means the City has met all ten requirements of the By-Name list scorecard, has achieved three months of reliable chronic By-Name List data and has set a baseline for the chronic active homeless number. This By-Name list data will continue to inform and measure the outcomes we are achieving in the goal of reducing and ending chronic homelessness in our community.
