On April 11, 2018, Calgary conducted our biennial Point-in-Time (PiT) Count of homelessness. This Count was Calgary’s third time participating in the provincially-coordinated PiT Count, and the first time participating in the nationally-coordinated PiT count.
PiT Counts provide a snapshot of the population of people experiencing homelessness on one night. Over time, these numbers can be used to help determine how homelessness is changing year after year.
The initiative was funded by the Government of Canada’s Homelessness Partnering Strategy.
