The Canadian Observatory on Homelessness (COH) is the largest national research institute devoted to homelessness in Canada. The COH is the steward of the Homeless Hub, which is a web-based research library and information centre.
The Homeless Hub provides a wealth of information, studies and education opportunities for communities, educators and professionals. Recently they shared the article: Youth Homelessness: Mental Health and Substance Use Patterns During COVID-19.

- pandemic impacts on mental health and substance use patterns;
- front-line practice adaptations; and
- promising and transformation approaches.
