Indigenous peoples are overrepresented among those experiencing homelessness in urban centres in Canada—colonialism, systemic and individual racism and poverty all create fewer opportunities and a greater risk of homelessness. On any given night, 6.97% of the urban Indigenous population in Canada is homeless, as compared to a national average of 0.78%. 41% of BC’s Indigenous peoples are at risk of homelessness and 23% are absolutely homeless.
