By Nojoud Al Mallees THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA- Auditor general Karen Hogan says the federal government doesn’t know if its initiatives aimed at reducing chronic homelessness are actually working. In a new report, Hogan said no organization has taken the lead on the federal government’s goal of reducing chronic homelessness by 50 per cent by 2028. The report said Infrastructure Canada and Employment and Social Development Canada do not know whether their programs are improving housing outcomes for people experiencing homelessness. The auditor general provides oversight to the federal government by conducting audits of its operations and financial accounts. Hogan released four reports on Tuesday assessing the government’s performance on a range of issues, including chronic homelessness, emergency management in First Nations communities, Arctic waters surveillance
