Homeless Count 2019

Homeless counts have taken place across the Metro Vancouver region every three years since 2002. Each year, the count takes place throughout the city over a 24 hour period in March, inside shelters during the evening, and on the streets the next day. Volunteers play a key role in homeless counts. Some of our own Neighbourhood Ministry volunteers helped with this year’s count.

The Homelessness Services department presented the results of the count to Vancouver City Council on June 12.
