Every year 65,000 young Canadians experience homelessness or live in a shelter. For these vulnerable individuals, landing and keeping a job is both a difficult and dire part of their precarious situation. Encouraging employers to hire youth can help to end chronic homelessness, with organizations like HireUP paving the way. The Agenda panel examines how employment is an integral part of lifting young Canadians up and out of poverty.
