Homeless Counts have been conducted across the Metro Vancouver region every three years (2002, 2005, 2008, 2011, 2014 and 2017).
The Counts are a 24-hour point-in-time snapshot and therefore the numbers are understood to be the minimum number of people who were homeless in the Metro Vancouver region during that period.
The homeless count is an important tool to better understand Metro Vancouver’s homeless population and is the best approach to determine if the homeless population is increasing or decreasing, as well as better understand trends within the population. Policy makers and community agencies have relied on the Count to inform program and service planning.
