Homelessness

Definition:

Over the last three years, the number of people experiencing homelessness in North and West Vancouver has increased by 39%, from 121 in 2020 to 168 in 2023. These figures are based on the 2023 Homelessness Count in Greater Vancouver, an initiative of the Homelessness Services Association of BC. 

Methods and Limitations:

Point-in-Time Homeless Counts (PiT Counts; Homeless Counts, Counts) have taken place in Greater Vancouver every three years since 2005. These are collaborative efforts by service providers, volunteers, and researchers to enumerate and survey the population experiencing homelessness in the region. This year’s Count was conducted in the evening of March 7th in shelters, transition houses, safe houses, hospitals, and police holding cells, and from 6am-midnight on March 8th.¬†
