Homelessness Action Week

Welcome to the Eastside Stride!

The Eastside Stride is a Homelessness Action Week (HAW) project available from October 12 to 20 to anyone who wants to know more about the Downtown Eastside (DTES), past and present. The two-hour walking tour, developed by UGM in partnership with Mission Possible and with support from City of Vancouver and numerous local service providers, not only builds awareness and promotes education within Greater Vancouver, it gives employment to local residents in an empowering and dignified manner. 

All tours are free of charge.

Tour Options: 

1. Guided Tour

This tour is guided in-person by a DTES community member and hosted by a trained Outreach Worker. These tours are expected to fill up quickly. 

Saturday, October 12 and 
Tuesday, October 15 – Sunday, October 20 
Walking tours occur between 10:00AM and 6:30PM

2. Audio Tour

The Audio Tour, while effectively the same as the Guided Tour, is conducted on your own time through the use of your cell phone and head phones. You can view the tour points through your phone’s screen as you listen to your tour guide. Note: The Audio Tour requires cell phones with a data plan. The tour works best with iPhones and Androids. 

Available from Saturday, October 12 – Sunday, October 20, 2013.
