The TDP focuses its education on researching the relationship between law and homelessness. Certain legislation may discriminatorily and disproportionately affect homeless populations, thereby perpetuating cycles of poverty.

The TDP partners with the University of Ottawa faculty of law to encourage the study of regulations governing or affecting homeless and street-involved populations. We believe it is important for all future lawyers to understand the root of access to justice issues.TDP also works with Pro Bono Students Canada to generate research and educate future lawyers.
