Point in Time Homeless Count

The Point in Time (PIT) Homeless Count & Survey is a coordinated event where volunteers count persons experiencing homelessness and ask them a number of questions to get a snapshot in time of those experiencing homelessness in the community.

The data is one tool among many to help shape programs and services, address issues, and measure progress in The City's efforts to end homelessness.

This is the first year the count is aligned with the federal count and the provincial 7 Cities on Homelessness.

The PIT Count and Survey is funded in part by the Government of Canada's Homelessness Partnering Strategy.
