Up to 110 homeless residents will be temporarily housed at Edmonton’s Coliseum Inn as housing support agencies grapple with shelter capacity levels amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 98-unit hotel in the Northlands area was leased by Homeward Trust and Boyle Street Community Services Monday. In addition to providing homeless Edmontonians shelter and support, the agencies will aim to find each person a permanent residence within 21 days.
