Under the supervision of Dr. Ronald Vogel, Colin's dissertation examines homelessness and affordable housing from an urban policy perspective, with a particular focus on Toronto's Streets to Homes program, a homelessness initiative based on a housing-first model.
In addition to being a testament to Colin's perseverance under challenging circumstances, his completion also demonstrates the breath of academic enquiry that is possible in an interdisciplinary policy studies doctoral program.
