The Wiigiwaaminaan Winter Response Program was launched at the beginning of December 2021 in partnership with St. Joseph's Health Care London and the City of London. The program helps house people during the winter months and is the first emergency shelter in the city to provide access to land-based healing.
The shelter is located next to Parkwood Institute and is uniquely positioned to provide culturally appropriate care for Indigenous people experiencing homelessness. Operating under an Indigenized Housing First model articulated in the Giwetashkad Indigenous Homelessness Strategic Plan, the program aims to prioritize access to land as a critical factor in alleviating Indigenous homelessness.
