The Fredericton Community Action Group on Homelessness is asking all three levels of government for assistance to make a long-term plan for ending chronic homelessness as the Brunswick Street emergency shelter, which opened its doors on Dec. 1, is set to close on March 31.

“Municipally, there are actions (officials) can take to support the creation of more affordable housing. Provincially, they need to be able to deliver on a provincial housing strategy,” said Faith McFarland, executive director of the Community Action Group on Homelessness.
