Responding to vulnerable Populations in our communities: Illegal encampments

Partner Agency Liaison team members

Calgary’s approach to vulnerable populations: the Partner Agency Liaison team

The Partner Agency Liaison (PAL) team consists of two dedicated Community Peace Officers who focus on addressing the root causes of situations that lead to homelessness and rough sleeping in Calgary. The PAL team has created a unique working model to address illegal encampments. This model focuses on creating positive working relationships and open communication channels with numerous social agencies and businesses who work to support vulnerable populations. This allows the team the ability to be client focused and develop rapport in a non-threatening way, to educate and help facilitate positive solutions for these vulnerable citizens, in support of the City’s commitment to vulnerable populations.
