A protector for the homeless will be named for the city of Montreal within the coming weeks.

According to the Montreal Gazette, Mayor Denis Coderre says the protector will ensure the homeless have fair access to designated services, and make recommendations to the proper authorities.

This announcement comes after the unveiling of two recent studies of the homeless population in Montreal.

Findings show that a large majority of the homeless population is held back by relationship problems or mental health issues.
