She's not the only one in this situation.

Only in Montreal, approximately 25 people are housed in emergency and have access to workers who are present to help them in their research.

“I was in crying, I'm shaking However, I was not even able to speak when he told me the news that I was not going to sleep in the street,” confided Ms. Lalonde.

Saturday, she confided to TVA Nouvelles that she had nowhere to go since she had lost her home and could no longer live with her daughter who has to accommodate her many children.

“I don't know where I'm going to go to sleep. I've looked everywhere for accommodation within my budget and I can't find anything. Landlords charge far too high prices for apartments that only have one bedroom. I'm scared,” she said.
