Coordinated Access Nipissing (CAN) is a shift in the way that community agencies support people who are homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless.
Individuals and families can call or visit any of the agencies listed below for more information on referrals, supports, and services to help them find or keep their home. You will be asked to complete a Common Intake and Consent form, and may be asked for further information to support your housing journey. People who are currently homeless can choose to add their name to the By-Name List (BNL). The By-Name List (BNL) is a registry of everyone who is homeless in the District of Nipissing. This list is used to assess individuals and households based on their current situation.
As services, supports, and housing options become available individuals and households will be matched based on their needs and overall eligibility.
