Shining a light on youth homelessness

SUDBURY – George Stephen spent 20 years living on the streets of Northern Ontario.

The Aboriginal man’s journey in and out of homelessness is chronicled in the documentary film A Will to Live, which will be screened at Cambrian College on February 24.

Cambrian’s Wabnode Centre for Aboriginal Services invites students and members of the public to attend the screening. A panel of homeless experts and frontline workers, as well as George Stephen, will participate in a question and answer period after the screening.

Refreshments will be provided.

The panel includes:

- Olivia Parry – homelessness and housing support worker, N’Swakamok Native Friendship Centre
- George Stephen
- Anna Harbulik – Sudbury Coalition Against Poverty (S-CAP)
- Paul Scheer – Cecil Facer Youth Centre
- Josh Wong – volunteer, collects and donates clothing for homeless people

About the Sudbury Working Group

The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op was formed to create independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media.

Currently, the Sudbury working group is on pause, due to a lack of members.  If you are keen to take on the challenge of creating and supporting local grassroots media, please get in touch.

Contact us at or follow us on Facebook.

If we become active again, we encourage you to support local grassroots media by:

  • Getting a membership. Membership fees are intended to pay local writers for local content and support emerging writers.  Membership forms are here
  • Submitting content. We are able to pay for a limited number of strong local pieces.  Contact us to pitch an idea, or for story ideas.   See our Editorial Policy here.  We encourage local grassroots groups to submit content about their work, issues and events.
