Where can the homeless live? This symposium will bring together two grass-roots organizations seeking to improve the housing situation for chronically homeless and unsheltered individuals in the Region of Waterloo. The first, A Better Tent City is a tiny-house community located on the lot of a former convention centre along Highway 7. After an unofficial shelter in a downtown Kitchener convenience store was shut down at the beginning of the pandemic, residents relocated to the lot.
