The homeless experience varies significantly across Canada, especially within different rural and remote regions of the country. Understanding the number of people experiencing homelessness - and where - is crucial. We need more accurate numbers to ensure the proper supports and services are in place.
Homelessness Counts builds on past work looking at how existing databases, such as provincial health data, could be used as an alternative way to determine homelessness among the population.
With funding from the Public Health Agency of Canada, the aim of this research project is to access and integrate existing sources of information to better understand how many people in Canada are homeless and who they are.
Join the research team for a virtual launch event for the project, hosted as a Zoom Webinar and shared live on Facebook.
